My Neighbors are not going anywhere, I'm not going anywhere. Most are retired and can afford to live here. I don't know where your 10 people are going and what type work they do, but if you can't pay your bills they should go.:$)

I met one at a bar the other night.

The BF knows one of the engineers at Hovensa is leaving.

One of my friend's BF is also leaving. So that makes three. They could be part of your ten, who knows. 🙂

I know more that are figuring out every way possible to stay. The ones I do do know who are leaving really DO NOT want to go.

I would say that the average number of people I personally am acquainted with who leave here annually after having lived here for anywhere from 6 months to 10+ years is close to 100. After Hugo and Marilyn the numbers exploded but I would say the one hundred figure is a pretty fair and constant average.
