Ummmm...YEAH! I am from Mississippi but I left on Sunday the 8th for a Disney World Vacation. Had a nice little run-in with Charley! (On the day we had set aside to go to Blizzard Beach, none the less)
We've had quite a weekend because of the storm. I live in southwest Florida along the coast. They told us the storm was headed right for us and evacuated the nearby barrier islands. I had friends that were evacuated and came to stay with us. Altogether we had 6 adults, 6 children, 4 dogs and 3 cats in my house! Then, the storm turned and hit just south of us and further inland. We barely got any rain! We had been so scared, we cleaned out closets so we could hide in them if all the windows blew in. It was a close call.
