Wow! We just spent last night hunkered down to ride out Hurricane Charley and our electricity has been out until now. Although the eye passed right through Orlando, we were on the better side to be on, and we only lost electricity. What a great surprise this was when I finally got to turn on my computer. Thanks you all for your comments! #708893
