    I checked with our Fire Marshall, he told me he couldn't find any regulations about personal storage, all the regulations he found (on his computer, for at least all of Florida) were for commercial storage.

    Actually, these folks are darn lucky. Bet it broke some windows.
    I believe they said the windows and door were blown 40 ft away from the house. Glad you killed him before he bit/scratched you! You could be going to the doctor getting shots in the butt right now :D

    Gasoline in a 5 gal can is more dangerous then BP stored in it's original cans. Both can cause trouble when spilled and not cleaned up. Keep it in its original containers and all will be ok.

    BP legal amounts vary by state. 50 lbs is not legal in all states.
