ditto! Hope all is well for folks down there!

Hey Ray, you going to be hit by Charley?? I hope not! It might be hard to walk with a cane against 145 mph winds!

I was just watching the news and I can't believe that there are people staying. That's like staying outside even though you know a tornado is coming towards your house - people are nuts!

Jamie,
He is "supposed" to get hit. He's been offline for a while, so I assume he's lost power. He is also one of those hard-headed people that are staying despite mandatory evacuation.

Yikes! I hope he's okay then. Those storm surges look to be very dangerous, especially considering they are saying that some parts of the Tampa area could become islands! I know I'd be high-tailing it out of there.

Ray I hope if you did stay and you are dealing with Charley's wrath that you are somewhere safe so you can just sit it out. Again my thoughts and prayers go out.

If Ray is in Tampa I think he missed it, but it is headed right for me
on the east coast. Of course by the time it gets across the state it
shouldn't be much.
Maybe Ray left Tampa! There are a lot of people over here from there,
and they aren't too happy it is following them!! :)

We're holding our breath here in coastal Georgia. In spite of the current predictions that we should "only" have some surges, tropical storm force winds and flooding, it ain't over til Charlie is waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay out to sea. Hope any of you in SC or NC are braced.

Well Ray posted on the us.visa group at 7:34 pm last night so assume he is fine and has power.

Cindy hope you come through your portion of the next hit without incident.

Thank you all...we were very fortunate ...it was due to hit us head on but it did a hard right further south around Port Charlotte and hit at 145 mph and then continued to cut a swathe thru the state ..and is currently heading toward the Carolinas..estimated damage in Florida is $15 billion.. the number of deaths has not been annouced yet.. Now!! for next week we have Hurricane Danielle..
