    We have a visitor today that ran through our area.

    This is real short but you can see the power it has - pretty cool to be in the middle of it.

    Thanks, it was actually pretty mild compared to the weather reports we were getting. Make the lake look like it was a rushing stream though.

    Yes, I'm down in central Florida. It was not bad for us but those that live in the upper north central areas may get a bit more action. I don't think it will think (certainly hope not) your friend will have major issues unless they are right on the shore.

    She's in Sarasota. I don't know where that is exactly but she just told me that the winds were getting really strong. She said it mangled the trees in front of her job and tore a nice chunk out of one of the trees on her lawn. She said she was able to make it home OK but she's not going anywhere else tonight.

    And she said it's still hot, despite the rain.

    Lived on the central Gulf coast for 10 years or so. Hurricanes SUCK. But they sure are exciting!

    Didn't Tropical Storms used to be named better? Colin just doesn't inspire the fear and dread that it should.

    That weather has moved on - this was what we got overnight in rain. About 4 and a half inches in 4 - 5 hours of hard rain per our backyard rain gauge.

    My wife is a bit of a nature freak so we bought this little gauge; we do get a fair amount of rain in the warmer months but normally it is not too bad.
