The evacuation zone stretched along Florida’s west coast from Key West to north of Tampa.

  1. Ya my sis is hanging out down in Florida.. fun fun.
    One year I was living in Va Beach they skipped Hurricane Rachel and changed it to Roberto or something… probably a good thing. THAT would have been a goooooood one.

  2. I just got electricity within the hour (live in Orlando.) This is my first comment since rejoining civilization :-). I will be posting more about my experience on my blog….later….when the air conditioning finally catches up.

  3. Wow, Randy – I totally forgot that you lived down there! I’m MORE than happy to hear that everything is OK and electricity was the only thing to go!

    I’ll check your blog and see your post about your experience down there.
