Yep, I'm in the direct path of Hurricane Charley, which is expected to make landfall around 2 p.m. on Friday. If this forecast track holds, it will be the first time since 1921 that the Tampa Bay area has taken a direct hit from a hurricane. We've been extrordinarily lucky.
Now I need to call the leasing office about sandbags for my flood-prone patio.
UPDATE: Now the entire county I live in is under mandatory evacuation.

But you'll miss the live show tonight!
Stay safe, Heewig! (Are you going to make sure Mr. Squirrel is okay?)
Can't you just imagine Julie in her apartment, surrounded by Mr. Squirrel, numerous ducks and her cats? Hee.
Seriously...stay safe. I'm all worried about you. You need to evacuate to Atlanta!
I'll be here for the live show. The hurricane-force winds (currently 105 mph) aren't supposed to hit us until 6 p.m. Friday. We will be getting 40 mph winds starting at about 1 p.m.
*battens own hatch*
Good Lord on a pogo stick, stay safe.
*rethinks plans for sending resumes to papers in Florida*
As a storm-chaser-at-heart, I'm a tad sad that I can't be in my old condo on Sand Key, that little strip of land which I'm sure will be completely submerged. Stay safe, HWG...or as Monty Python would say, "Run Away, Run Away".
