Mrs. P, Steve, and my other friends,
Thanks so much for checking in on me. It's nice to know people care.
Actually, as you correctly stated Mrs. P, I am about 45 minutes north of Tampa in Spring Hill. Hurricane Charley looked like it was sure to hit and devestate the entire Tampa Bay area (of which my county is considered a part), but literally at the last hour it took a sharp turn to the east and missed our area and hit to the south of Tampa by quite a bit. Basically, it had no impact on me at all, and Tampa got little more than some semi-heavy rain.
While I'm thankful that it didn't come my way (for surely it could and would have devestated my community had it come ashore anywhere close to us) I am of course saddened for those in south Florida. I don't know of anyone personally who lives down that way, but obviously it was horrible for them.
Thanks for the prayers and contact.
Thanks SO much for checking in Gary! So glad you're ok!
Glad to hear everything's ok with you and your family Gary. Continued prayers still go out for the other families throughout your state impacted by this terrible storm.
I should ammend my post above to say that I don't know of anyone personally in south Florida - OTHER THAN MY GOOD CC FAMILY FRIENDS!
I'm grateful to hear that folks like Mary Ann, who was much close to Charley than I was, are ok now.
I have some special "stuff" on for tonight's chat room in honor of our Florida Friends!!
Maybe Rush and Marie's Sweet Sarah can give an extra one of her cute "whoops" for everybody tonight!
