Hurricane Charley was the one I was in while at the beach in the Outer Banks, N.C. (only I thought it was '85). * I have a T-shirt that says "I survived Hurricane Charley". *It wasn't too bad...Cat 1. *It was an interesting experience. *Water was squirting in through the windowsills and trickling under the doors. *House was rocking, no power and we had no TV (for news). *We did have a radio though to keep up with what was going on. *The next day dawned bright and sunny like nothing ever happened. *There was damage but nothing too bad.
Hey Dino and Alexis...I was curious as to what you are seeing/hearing on the news there about what is going on here. *I was wondering if the airtime on news channels outside of the U.S. is as saturated with it as here...and if people outside of our country are getting the full scope (and horror) of what has happened. *It is so, so bad and growing worse every day. *Too many people need help and its all hampered by no electricity, poor communication, debris-clogged roads, etc.
Our company is having a fund-raising event on Wed. selling hot dogs and baked goods. *Money will go the Red Cross.
We had a car wash for the tsunami relief and raised about $3,000 in just a few hours.
Should be easier to cook hot dogs than wash cars. *[img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/confused.gif[/img]
