    That would be Hurricane Charlie. And I'm still waiting to hear from my grandparents who live in Bonita Springs, not too far south of Punta Gorda.

    Glad to hear all the regulars are accounted for. Lots of family down in Fla., but everyone is I know safe and sound. Glad it hugged the coast when it came our way. Didn't even get a shower from it. By the time the ones that do come our way get here, they're usually not a hurricane anymore, just a giant rainstorm that ends up causing all kinds of flooding. We've had enough rain this year...something like 5 inches over average so far. The folks living on/near the rivers don't need more to worry about.

    That's the worst part about the after-effects of these things. They pretty much take out all communications for days, if not weeks. Best of luck to anyone waiting to hear from a friend/loved one.

    Well there's also the greedy bastages that try to exploit the situation. When I was taking crj101, there was a police detective from Florida that mentioned a bit about the exploitation from the huricane that hit there in the early 1990s. The $5 gallons of water was also on the news as I remember...

    People's homes are wrecked, some might be injured or worse, there can be family uncertain about their well being; and yet there are some who think to profit out of trajedy and make themselves a quick buck :(

    I have family that moved down to Florida, as well as North Carolina (guess the huricane didn't hit there?)...and am getting ready to leave for a big family renunion we're having next week (in Ocean Park, ME actually). I guess I'll see if they make it, then...
