When we moved into this house, I guess around 8 years ago, we (Sandi) bought this little Gargoyle to set out on the deck. He is made out of stone and has been sitting in the same place ever since then. I'm not sure what the purpose of the Gargoyle is but I think it is either supposed to bring you luck or keep the bad guys away.
I never move him out of harm's way when a storm is approaching. We move the furniture and plants and other things that could blow around but never the Gargoyle. Yet, there he sit's, never moving a fraction of an inch. He has been through a few hurricanes, terrible wind storms, blizzards, and the wind on the eastern shore is always blowing. Hurricane Sandy was bad but not bad enough to budge the Gargoyle. We'll just leave him sit and see what happens to him.
