Hopefully everyone else is OK too!
Hurricanes can be a very scary.

I don't know where you are in FL but I was thinking of you and hoping you weren't in the path of the storm. I'm visiting my cousin near Weeki Wachi in 2 weeks and luckily her house - right on the river - was fine (she evacuated to a hotel in Orlando, right in Charley's path).
We thought we'd have problems in Baltimore but it was only a gentle rain and didn't last long. The cool weather has been nice, though!

We have some members living in this part of the world, so hope all is well!

I live in that area. I can tell you I would not want to be in a catagory 4 hurricane.
By the way when it got here it had winds of 85mph gusting to over 100mph. Most damage here was large trees blown down and roofs damaged.
I just had my power restored tonight at 8pm with it being out since Friday around 7:30

Ron, do hope you get out of there if the other two, Storm Danielle and Tropical are heading in that direction!
Lisa, if you have any news regarding the ones mentioned, or any others, can you possibly post here?

Glad to finally hear from you as I knew you were near the path of Charley. Was this your worst experience with a hurricane?
Here is information about the next storm, it is from www.weather.com:
Hurricane Danielle continues to churn northward far out in the Atlantic Ocean. Danielle will pose no threat to the U. S., but eventually may turn northeastward toward the Azores Islands. It could swirl into the Azores this weekend, but by then likely would be only a tropical storm. Closer to the US, the erstwhile Earl, now just a tropical wave with gusty winds, is plowing westward south of Jamaica. The wave could regenerate into a depression or storm as it reaches the western Caribbean, but shows no signs of doing that now.

Hurricane, NO THANKS. We symphatize with all of you who went through this last one. Margarets' mother and brother still live in Tampa (she was born there and lived there until we were married) but they live on the inland side and said the hurricane didn't affect them, thank goodness.
