I beat you. 5:30 to 6:30.

Listen, I need everyone's prayers for my friend. Her husband had a grand mal seizure while evacuating this am (1st time ever) and he fell in the bathroom and broke and dislocated her shoulder. She has several quite little ones. You can imagine her state of mind.

She just called me from the hospital and asked me if she couldn't please stay with me, because now it's physically too hard for her to evacuate. Of course she's welcome, but I know she would appreciate a mention before the Lord. She is so worried about her husband.

Do they shut down phone service/other utilities to those communities when an evac order is issued?

They were going to shutdown electricity to Tampa this morning. Perhaps other Freepers down that way can tell you if they shut off electricity to other parts.

You could call the Hernando County Sheriff's office, or maybe the county Emergency Management number, and ask if that park was evacuated. I'm sure they're busy, but hey, it's family.

You can go to and click "Listen Live" to listen to an AM station in the Tampa area.

Florida Progress has asked to conserve energy as they are shutting down a sub station or two.

We live near a bridge to the beaches, and they're shutting all the briges TO the beaches down at 11 AM, plus they're going to shut down the power in some of the beach communities at that time.

Leni! Crossed fingers here on the left coast.
One thing for sure - your house will get a free
power wash. We pay a lot for that here.
Be safe.

Here I am in Illinois
My house is down in Floridah
All I can do is mutter "oy"
It's in the storm's main corridah

In hours I'll be in my car
Tootlin' south on 75
Hope my house is standing thar
When I at last arrive

Just biting all my nails right now
And thinking of the worse
Sippin' on a cold Black Cow
And writing silly verse.

Just checked the NWS projection for Charlie, and looks like we may be repeating our experience with Isabel last year if it heads into NC.
