    Another update...
    A friend of mom's lives east of Port Charlotte and part of their roof was ripped off. The damage estimate is $20,000. A lighting store not far from mom's house was completely destroyed. At the same intersection on US 41 where the lighting store was/is located is the last functioning stop light. All lights further down the road are either not working or are completely gone. The big, metal street signs are all twisted. All in all, mom was lucky the eye went to the east of her. If it hadn't, she surely would have had a *LOT* more damage, just like the people in Punta Gorda.

    All in all, it looks sunny and clear in FL right now, so hopefully they'll be able to get power up for more people before the regular summer rains pop back up.


    One funny.... On the Weather Channel, they showed a clip of a sign someone made on the beach at Sannibel Island. They dug it in the sand for helicopters and planes to see (yes, this is true. I saw it earlier today). Their plea for assistance simply reads......

    Finally back online here! In Kissimmee, I moved into my house i just bought Wednesday, and had the eye of charley on Friday with 100mph winds. I was expecting the worse and ended with the best. They had a new roof installed in April so we were spared. About 80% of the neihgborhood I am in has lost some or all of their roof. We lost our fence, but I wanted to place it anyway so that helped move that project up the list a bit quicker.

    Thanks for the 'poem' MB about Charley. Hope all went well with others out there in the path.

    With a special thanks to Andrew in '92, we have to pay 2% of the house value if we are going to make any claim with the insurance. We are filing through FEMA for the cost of the fence.

    That worked. I just laughed after reading it. After the week of packing to move and then having to throw it all into one room in the house (and what a mess it still is) then hoping the house was standing, followed by "will they ever turn it back on" became very stressful. Even though I read it almost a week later, it was much needed.
