Any other Floridians in the paths of Charley or Bonnie?

I awoke to news that the island I work on has been ordered to evacuate, so no work today...I live in Fort Myers, about 15 miles inland. It's turning into a madhouse here, a mad rush for supplies in anticipation of tomorrow afternoon(Bonnie is expected to make landfall in northern Florida today). I know there are a handful of interferencers in the Tampa area, which now seems to be on Charley's path. Hope everyone stays safe from the storm....I'm on my way out to gather supplies..... yay.

I'm sitting here at work, and they still have not decided if we are going to be open tomorrow or not

Checking in and representing for the Tampa Bay! Whoohoo ridin' the hurricane donkey!!

As an aside bitch and moan, my pool guy didn't drain our pool that is already overflowing this morning - which is bad b/c the rain from the storm will now flood our entire porch.

HelloAngel, are you getting a wee bit freaked out too?

Yeah - I'm getting a tad anxious. I can't seperate drama from truth on this one. It looks like a direct hit - they're evacuating Pinellas, and my pool and lake are overflooded. Tampa can't handle anymore rain!!

I'm not, but both of my vacation spots are in jeopardy (Marco Island, FL and Gulf Shores, AL). I talked to my grandparents today who live south of Naples (coast of south western Florida) for 6 months of the year and they said some of that area and Sanibel is supposed to evacuate tonight. They don't have insurance on their trailor down there so hopefully it remains intact.

We've been told to report to work tomorrow and bring a 3 day supply of food, clothes, and other needed items.

The rec center's being used as a shelter, yay

One of the benefits of working in local government I guess. I don't know exactly what they want the rec center employees to do though

best of luck to all who are in the path.

The only thing Atlanta had this morning were some hard downpours (which made me sleep very well) but by the end of the afternoon it was pretty, cool and windy.

We called my cousin who lives in Tampa last night, she had no clue about the storms.

It's 3:30 in the morning (I was awoken by thunder) and we're expecting the worst of it at about 6 PM Friday. A band of thunderstorms is passing through the area as I type, and things will start worsening later in the morning. We're hoping for a more westerly track to keep the storm surge to a minimum. Most of the couny I live in is at or below sea level...you do the math! Keeping our fingers crossed...
