I lived in Orlando for 10 years. Four years ago we decided to move back to Toronto. I started work here the first week of September 2004. I left my wife in what was to be the first of 4 hurricanes that would hit while our house was up for sale. After every storm I would have to go back on the weekend to arrange for contractors to fix the roof or pool screen or remove a fallen tree. She was a real trooper to stay there alone. Fortunately for us, with so many houses damaged homes and an excess demand for undamaged ones, our price shot up about 20% in 6 weeks.

I am sure you will weather the storm OK.

Paul

Except for the storms and the heat in the summer, it is a great place to live. I miss fishing on the flats, walking on Sanibel beach and skin diving in the Keys during lobster mini season. (Must have been last week?)

you gotta stay aware. I lived in Sarasota for about 20 yrs. It seems like storms will either pass right by, or level you.

Prepare for the worst, especially get some cash on you. ATM s don't work with no power.

Luck.

HAHA! I arrived the day after The weather was still far from good but at least they allowed me to drive again. Happily chased storms ever since. At least it won't be as bad in my corner as in yours.

THis whole tropical storm thing has me pretty irritated. First Crist calls a state of emergency while the thing is 4 days away. Grandstanding maybe? He certainly motivated a great man of people to wipe out the can goods, batteries, and bottled water sections at every wal-mart. Seriously, if it less than a Cat 2 then it aint worth getting out of bed.
I did pull the loose items out of my yard but thats about it. I'd be going to work too if the schools weren't closed. But seriously, it is only going to amount to a nasty, windy, wet day. Sounds like any other day in Florida to be honest

I think the weather guys are blowing this out of porportion, they haven't had much to talk about like they predicted.
