Re: Update...if you're interested

hey Jim,

Don't know if you'll still have power by now - I've been watching the
weather channel off and on and it looks like Charley landed right up
Charlotte Harbor.  Hope all is well - with the 18' storm surge predicted in
some parts, your 28' elevation looks to be evolving into temporary
beachfront property.  Stay dry!

Appears to be moving quite quickly, which should be a good thing.  Wonder
how the heck they batten down all the amusement parks in the Orlando area?
Whatever's left of it is supposed to make it all the way up to this general
area late tomorrow - we'll see how it fares and where it rambles before
getting too concerned here.

I've been travelling for work during the week since the latter part of June
and although I've tried to read through batches of Chat on the weekends, I'm
now almost 3500 messages behind.  Afraid I may have to resort to drastic
measures this time.  Apologies for all the important events I will have let
pass unacknowledged...
