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!

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 to see you made it through William. Lots of folks here were worried about you. I hope all the critters made it too.

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.
