Default Lifts during a storm

Taking a neighbors boat to the ramp today, I saw a bunch of boats still LOW in lifts. Not good.

Saw some lifts tied up, but 2 docks had the lifts lowered into the water.

That kind of makes sense I guess, as the water motion will be overhead not on the bottom.

What do you do with your lifts to prep for a storm?

Raise it up as high as it will go and tie off all 4 corners. Boat on trailer in front of the house.

That's what I've done. This one may be tame, or not. Surge is supposed to be 10 ft according to the media so I expect it will be 4 or 5 ft.
