And earthquakes! And it seems to me that all regions have their problems. Between hurricanes on the East Coast and earthquakes on the West Coast, there are tornadoes in the Midwest, Canadians on the North Border and Mexicans on the South Border
true, true, But earthquakes dont come as often as hurricanes and tornadoes. We have earthquakes every couple of years, hurricanes come every year, i believe.

Yes, and a few times a year. We are lucky if we only get one a year. But earthquakes can destroy just ask easily.

I live in Orlando, so Charley buggered my area a big one.

I lucked out pretty well though. Power was only out till Sunday night, just about nil house damage.

Others aren't as lucky though. Power out, some street lights are still sodded. And schools are torn up. My county's schools are out until next Tuesday, and the year just started last week. So we're gonna get screwed badly with holidays.

I'd rather live with blizzards...

Whoa.. Blizzards around here SUCK. We had a ice storm a few years back, and now we are down a few trees and everything. Power was out forever, and our generator was busy running my uncles restaurant. I had to go to work with my dad to use his internet cause we didn't get ours back for about 3 days (I about died). So yeah, 5 days without power, and I was sick on top of that..., it sucked. bad. I like to sled tho... when there is light to do it...

Holy crap, school started the 4th for me...

Heh, well I live in southern Florida right where Hurricane Charlie came. We didn't get it as bad as some neighboring cities, we had HORRIBLE storms but nothing to where houses were being destroyed. A few tornadoes but honestly... this past hurricane is NOTHING compared to what Andrew did to us a few years ago. That was realllll bad.

Ugh, THEY WON"T QUIT COMING!

Ok, so 2 new geographical features have been added to my yard. 2 creeks. One in the "used to be" dried up ditch in my back yard, and one separating my house from my neighbors.

We're still drying out after 2 days of sun. Ew. Ew. Double Ew.


And we are waiting for the next one.

EW ew ewwwwww.

Pictures of the most awesome place on earth... now needing $75000 to - $125000 to pay for damage.

I'm wondering if Floridans will change the way they build new homes as a result of all this. Perhaps build it like a military bunker or something.

SOme who are interviewed are saying they aren't going to rebuild in FL, but move somewhere else.


Hey, its not like you can really get away from it on the East coast. I mean, yeah, Hurricanes hit all over the East Coast, this year they are just going all over FL.
