To all of you in Florida - or anywhere in the path of this thing - take care. I know I'm speaking for lots of others when I say our hearts and prayers are with all of you. Good Luck - and keep us posted if you can.
Thank you for your concerns, Hazel.
We have been thru many stroms like this and take it all for granted. Always be prepared, say the scouts, and Florida is this time. Unlike New Orleans. The first hurricane I expreienced was Donna in 1960. My family started building our home and only about 6 weeks from completion when it struck. I was a teen then & scared out of my wits.
My children are well versed on how to stay safe. There is more damger from lightning strikes in Florida then hurricanes.
Thanks for thinking of us, Hazelson. We are still waiting and wondering what Wilma will do. For Ft. Lauderdale, we probably won't know much until Monday. Just praying for the best outcome for all.
Thanks, Jenn. The worst part is waiting. We're going down to Ft. Lauderdale tomorrow and hope to get out of port on Sunday. So far, the Ship is on schedule. We're starting to get rain showers now.
We Floridians appreciate everyone's concern and prayers!!! Lynne
My thoughts and prayers are with you all too. I can't believe how she is hanging around Cancun and beating on that place. It's horrible to see and think of all the devastation. It's going to be a tense weekend waiting to see just where she will go. I'm hoping all of our friends on the west coast of Florida, the Keys and the rest of the state come out of this ok.
It is the waiting that can get to you if you let it. Now if Wilma would just move on instead of just sitting there. Those poor people in Cancun and Cozumel, will they ever return to normal.
Phyll, guess you are glad that you didn't come down sooner. Praying for all in the line of Wilma to be safe.
