Charley!!

LOL... not sure what it will look like. It's dark now. But I burried my flag pole in the ground so it should stay - but the TV says we will have 75 MPH wind and that will make everything fly. In the morning you will see 2 lawn chairs looking at you - I wonder if they will be there when I get up.

It's kind of scary though - they expect the worse. We might be under water come tomorrow night. Let's hope everyone makes it out ok!

BTW - how bad have I got it......

..... after all these years racing RC cars??

I have the generator sitting by the garage door ready to crank for tommorrow if we lose power - because I have get my car ready for the Sunday FOCAR's race: tires to cut - motors to get ready - batteries to cycle! I hope I have a cord for the fridge hmmmm haha!!!

Hey KAT! Don't try and put that COKE bottle on my car when I win - we make the rules and J.D. is legal - and that's what I drink in victory lane - OOHHHHYYAAAAA!! (maybe a little Coke will be OK then)

HAHA! CYA at the races!

Hang in there Mike!

As y'all probably know by now the projected path for charley puts the storm, Downgraded but still nasty, Directly on a path for us north Fl guys after it gets done with you guys. We're already getting rain and wind and yesterday several tornado's touched down in the area. Darn it I wanted to go fishing today too. See y'all sunday.

Maybe next time...

Well.. we have more action on a summer afternoon! What a crazy buildup just to have nothing - not even .01 rain!!!! ERRR. But a catagory 4 would have leveled my hemi's and house for sure so I am glad we made it out ok.

There are 2 more waves coming off Africa so I will keep the camera ready for th next round. Some good footage today on local Tampa TV.
