I hope you all made it through those terrible storms last night. If you can, maybe you could check in here to let us know you're ok. *worryworryfretfret*

I'm alright, got woken up a little after 6 today...which is kind of a good thing since it let me get to work earlier (means I can leave earlier). But it was basically pounding rain and wind.

Obviously turned on the TV to find Tornado Watches/Warnings, but none were really in my area. I'm in Oviedo, on the border of Orlando, border of Orange and Seminole county. But it was Volusia or some such that got hit. Since I've been here in 2001, I'm pretty sure Charlie was the only major bad thing to happen, and I wasn't in town at the time.

I'm fine too, I'm out in Avalon Park... just a bunch of rain and wind that scared my daughter and kept her up all night - therefore I was up all night.

Off topic - Yesterday i was at the Florida Mall, there's a calendar stand kinda near Nordstroms... they have 2007 Panther calendars on sale for $4... and they have quite a few.

Really? I work right by there, interesting. Might check that out if I have free time, which no, I don't have anytime soon.

That's cool that they're aware that hockey exists in Orlando. Ever listen to O-Rock or Real Rock radio try to do a sports report? They don't even consider the Lightning important to cover. Don't get me started on local news sports coverage.

I'm fine, too. Live about 10 minutes from Disney in Hunter's Creek, which is south Orlando. The places hit are about 1 1/2 hours from me. Though, like the others, we were awoken about 6AM from a loud crack of thunder. Ivy actually handled it well, it woke her up, but she didn't make a peep.

My uncle lives in Lake County and was awoken about 5AM and had to run down to the lake to take the plug out of his boat so it wouldn't sink due to how much rain was falling at the time.

Just heard 14 people killed, this is crazy, these kinds of tornadoes don't happen here, except in hurricanes.

Thank God you all are ok. Scary stuff on the news! My sister is in O-town right now on vacation. She called and said they were fine too.

Fox News was talking about how some homes in Florida don't have basements. I'm thinking, I don't know of anyone who has a basement here. LOL

We're on the 3rd floor, definitely no basement. I don't know of anyone who has a basement here either. We were watching Fox News, too, they said there's another tornado on the ground.

I am glad to hear you are all OK. I wish we'd hear from Rattrick. I think he is in that area.

What? Plenty of homes in Florida have basements. We just call them in-ground pools

Hey! I learned how to multi-quote! No more serial posting.

It reminds me of when my cousins came down to visit from New York, they were probably in middle school at the time. And they were shocked to find out most people had pools with their homes in South Florida.

Also: "Wow, do you go to school? Or do you like, go to theme parks everyday?"

Oh, if only.

I live pretty close by, near the Waterford Lakes area. We hardly got any rain, so it was weird to see how bad the storms were elsewhere.

Good luck to everyone, hopefully you're all ok.

I live in east Orlando and I only found out about it when my mom called me to see if I was alright. I knew the wind was pretty bad all day yesterday and as I was driving home from a buddy's poker game around 11 pm, I was having some trouble keeping my car in line, but I didn't notice anything else until I got up.

I'm glad to hear you're all safe.

Hopefully, Rattrick will check in with us soon.

According to his profile, his last activity was at 8:05pm tonight, but we'd still like to hear from him. HINT HINT

He's probably dragging it out to keep you all in suspense

Sorry guys, had to make this suspenseful

Nothing big by me really, but I may have heard my first tornado. Tough to say for sure because I've never been in one, but it sounded like a really loud roaring thunder roll that lasted for 10-15 seconds. A coworker of mine who lives up the street said he and his girlfriend both thought it was a tornado that didn't touch down, but who knows.

Much like Hagman-O-War, I didn't even know about all the devestation until my Mom called to check up on me. My best friends parents live up in Deland but are down in West Palm for the weekend, so they don't know yet how they faired.. I hope everything is fine with them.
