I'm alive..and surivied Hurricane CHarley

Hey all.

I don't have much time to post [ I'm stealing time from the Generator while the others are away ]

So I'll just say, I ahve alot of pictures of the hurricanes aftermath that I'll post on my website when I get power.

I do not have power, They estimate it its return for us by thursday.

Massive ****age all around me, Power poles broke in half, hundred year oaks ripped from the ground roots and all, cars crushed.

I made it through with minimal damage.

We're surviving the Florida heat with a Generator hooked up to a window AC unit

I'll be back when our power is returned, Hopefully soon!

Yay, glad to hear from you William. Hope you do get your power back soon. 8)

And God said, "Let the waters swarm with fish and other life..." So God created great sea creatures and every sort of fish... And God saw that it was good. Then God blessed them, saying, "Let the fish multiply and fill the oceans..." Genesis 1:20-22

OMG - thank goodness! We have been wondering, especially since you vowed not to evacuate... color me relieved.

Hope you get your power back soon, and when my power was out last summer for the hurricane a few hours a day running my tanks on the generator was all I needed. Good luck -

Good thing you made it through with minimal damage. Sucks to be those who not only lost their precious fish, but there homes and jobs and everything they new that existed. It would be hard to restart life after that. Good thing I live in California.

At least with hurricanes they get warnings and can evacuate. We could have an earthquake at any second without any kind of warning.
