Have I missed any stories of disaster from our Group?

Not from me. We got a light rain and some wind but nothing more. I'm not fooling myself though, I was lucky.

Perhaps those that might have an interesting story are still without power.



Saint Cloud, Minnesota, where the weather is wonderful even when it isn't.

Expecting 3-6" of rain and wind gusts of 60mph tomorrow, yuck.

WHOA! I suspected there might be sea life swept inland, but did not think about gators.

The gators aren't the only uninvited guests:

The gator in the house is photoshop
The shark along I-4? I-4 doesn't go near the gulf or Tampa Bay
That isn't a Manatee, it is a walrus (or elephant seal, can't tell for sure).

Still fun to look at them.

I-4 goes right up to Tampa Bay.

We’re still without power. Lots of small branches down and a little standing water. We drove around the neighborhood last night and saw some large trees blocking roads. Lots of flooded areas in the region.

It’s a seal and it was in Chile.

I-4 goes right up to Tampa Bay.

The closest I-4 gets to Tampa Bay is a single dockside channel that is 1/2 mile away. I-4 is also higher in elevation than Ybor City in most places. It runs into I-275 which is north of downtown. I-275 crosses Tampa Bay, but that is about five miles away.

Regardless, there was no flooding on I-4 in Tampa.

Orlando got it much worse than the bay area.

Regardless of the source/veracity (or lack thereof!) of such photos, these things are of real concern: [www.cbsnews.com]

Shark is a fake photo also. It’s a Photoshop of two different images.
