    Naples/Marco/Bonita Springs is pretty much fine. Downed branches and trees everywhere, a couple gas station roofs gone, and minor damage here and there but other than that its OK. Punta Gorda/Port Charlotte is FUCKED. I was up there yesterday helping distribute fresh water, ice, food and diapers and it is absolutely devastated. If anyone can spare anything to help these people out, please do, they need all the help they can get!

    hey thanks for the update.

    I work for USAF/Homeland Security so we have been sending sin supplies via Civil Air patrol and Air Force planes. If I could get time off I would be down there helping. Appreciate the volunteer work.

    Over here in Daytona the hurricane sucked ass. I know everyone west of us got hit pretty hard, but it still came through here pretty good. We lost power Friday night and Didn't get it back on till this Friday that just passed. Everyone else around us got power 2 days earlier, but the power line that feeds our house was broken.

    "How did it break?", you might ask. Well, the asshat that lives behind us has a jungle for a back yard and refused to cut down some of his trees that overhang the power lines. Thanx to him, 3 houses were without power cause of his stupid ass trees. Oh yeah, he had power because he comes off a different pole, so I don't think he really cared. (bastard).

    Anyways, glad to see everyone is ok.
