    Hurricane Charlie Let me tell you about that a-hole. Ive lived in a town that for the past 15 years has never even seen wind from a hurricane. All until MR. Charlie came to town. He destroyed my girl's house. and every single possession she had. My sister in law, her daughter and husband, and my 2 dogs were in the house and luckily were not hurt. They hid in a closet. Me and my girl, we were in the next town at my house not even 5 miles away, and all we got was wind. I have great respect for FEMA and American Red Cross and all those other agencies that help during these natural disasters. If anyone else cares to share their stories I would love to hear them.

    I have very good friends in Topeka, Kansas who related a story concerning tornados. Apparently, the white man intended to remove a hill for building progress but was warned by the red man not to do so else, disaster would ensue as the hill protected Topeka from the worst effects of the tornado. I am sure you can guess the rest.

    Been in Florida for the past few years, so we lived through the fun times here... but my worst hurricane experience was Wilma in VA. You could hear the trees falling outside...

    On a bright note, seems like this storm will be a mainly rain event, and may bring much needed rain to central florida. There is a fire burning at Disney...

    Oh, my Florida hurricane story... well she is just over 1 and was born about 9 months after one of those Fl hurricanes

    I went through Hurricane Hugo in September 1989 in Charlotte...for those of you who don't know, Charlotte is a good ~150 miles inland from the Atlantic coast, but we had big oak trees knocked onto our house and all over the place...no power for a couple weeks...could've been a lot worse though

    We all got stuck either at home or outside the area we live in due to Allison a few years ago thanks to all the flooding she produced. You couldn't leave, and if you left, you had to wait because of the flooding, to get back in. I was in college when she hit and got stuck going in circles waiting for water to recede just to get back home. My dad tried to go to work one morning and had to turn around and come back home. My mom managed to leave but had to wait for the water to drain to get back home.

    With Katrina last year, we were making plans to evacuate but she decided to go another direction. We only lost power and got rain for a few hours with Rita.

    Re: Tropical Depression Number One Is Here

    I signed up for email and RSS feeds and I do not get them on time, I get them hours after other people have already found out the information. So Im unsubscribing and I figure since Im on here all day long, I can just look for updates from all of you!!! Thankx Melissaox.

    Don't use the RSS feeds much but the emails work great for me. I signed up years ago, so maybe it is sent to people in the order they signed up. I usually get the info right away.

    Re: Tropical Depression Number One Is Here

    That's odd. I noticed after my last post I was getting my old sign up and new sign up at the same time. Is the email address its going to correct? Or forwarding to the BB. I send mine through yahoo as I get it immedeatly. Sometimes I know I have an email on my BB before I get the yahoo message.
