Charley, Sorry

Hurricane Charley is heading our way tomorrow. We are buying extra supplies and we also decided to have HomeTeam at our place on Friday to wait out the storm together. I guess its going to be pretty bad.

(AP) — A stronger-than-expected Hurricane Charley roared ashore Friday as a dangerous Category 4 storm, pounding the heavily populated Gulf Coast with 145 mph wind and towering surges of water.

The little black circle where the arrow is pointing is about where we are. We survived. Lucky for us, our place is situated so that the winds were blowing across the windows rather than against them.

Wow, 80% of Orlando is without power. We are in the fortunate 20%. Lots of trees down blocking roads, majority of traffic lights are out, its nearly impossible to get anywhere. The gas stations (the 20% that are able to run their pumps) have lines wrapping around blocks. Pretty bad damage last night.
