Did you replace the weather strip on the underside of the door? Even new that type of strip is likely to leak with a heavy wind. A storm door or water diverter on the bottom of your door would be a help.

Joe beat me to it, that is the diverter I was talking about.

I did..that is what I was talking about w/ the other gentleman. It does get beat up pretty fast, and YES, my immediate plan calls for a storm door which I believe will help a LOT. Anyone ever try the Andersen 2500 series storm door? Its between that from HD or a Larson from Lowes.
