    I live in Orlando. Kinda worried about it. [​IMG] I saw the trajectory path, but anyone remember Charlie? Tampa! Tampa! Watch out! *2 hours later* OSHI- Orlando! [​IMG]
    So any thoughts? Anyone here in the Sunshine State? [​IMG]

    Yo, I live in Palm Coast. It's just a tropical storm right now, I don't think it'll be that bad in the end.

    True. F2 ATM... No, not even. I think it'll just be another Jeanne.

    (At the most, not at the moment)

    I'm in the Tampa area. Not especially worried because they never hit very hard here but it could happen...

    Or we could just get off for school on Tuesday and not much else lol.

    I'm in Melbourne... we haven't had many major hurricanes hit here.

    Hope that doesn't change soon... but I still hope school is off.

    Yay! More Floridians! 'Least I'm not alone. =]

    And yes, that's also true. Charlie was the only scary one since Frank. And school's definitely gonna be off for most of Florida. Even the East Coast 'cause they can never be sure on where it's gonna go.

    And yeah! That's what I was thinking Mewgia!

    I'm in Florida, just moved here about 2 months back, and just recently got our own apartment in Cape Canaveral. Before I moved here I was in Ohio for two years and before that Rhode Island.

    I'll be starting 11th grade tomorrow ;_;

    Lived in Orlando all my life then about 2 years ago bought my home down in Winter Haven. So this will be my 1st as a home owner but I surly remember that year we had the 3 hit us and the loooong wait we went threw to get our power back on (couple of days) when Charlie hit. Almost seems as this one might take the same path

    I live in Cape Coral. We'll get hit, but I don't think it will be that bad.

    I live in Melbourne, and school is off tomorrow. I hope that we don't get hit bad. It's supposed to hit pretty late, so maybe I can sleep thru the thing.

    Got off school today (and maybe tomorrow too) because of the storm. Not sure if it's actually going to hit here or not...

    I only got today. I guess it's just some gusts with a few harmless tornadoes.

    Not exactly the hurricane force winds I was promised, lol.
