I'm checking my hurricane supplies and getting ready to board up (tommorow). I've been here in Naples for 25 years, seen a few tropical storms, and went through Andrew after the East coast knocked the steam out of him; I am hoping for more good fortune with Charlie. Sorry, folks, but I am hoping he goes somewhere else.

The last hurricane to hit here (directly)was Donna in 1960.
