Hurricane coming after my hometown…

I am glued to MSNBC watching Hurricane Charley updates. Last night I figured it would be a relatively mild storm – category 2, or maybe category 3 they were saying. Well now it’s a category 4 and it’s coming straight for where my Mom and brother live. They don’t seem to be too worried, but given that I live in Seattle and I can only see the scary pictures coming across the news I’m getting pretty worried.

On a lighter note, my friend’s Web design and development company changed their home page for today to reflect the hurricane.

    Hi Brian –

    I live in Naples, as you know just south of landfall. Unless your family lives directly (and I mean somewhere around Sanibel, Punta Gorda, Charlotte Harbor, etc.) all should be fine. Quite a bit of debris, downed trees and the like, but overall, feeling pretty lucky.

    It was exciting though, as we originally thought this was going up to Tampa … watching the radar loop and using my trusty little flexible straight-edge made me go out and pick up the lawn furniture! Who says you need to be meteorologist to forechast hurricanes!

    I was in Apopka, we didnt get much damage.

    My apartment is closer to Oviedo, and it got HAMMERED over there. Trees down, powerlines down, no water [no electricity].

    So i went back to the hurricane party house and stuck around: we still had power! 😉
