Orange Parks power had just been restored. This is not the effect of Charley; we are having other small storms in the area. This is so crazy. The big storm has not hit yet, but will tonight. All the little storms are causing flooding and they are warning the county next to us, Duval County. We live in Clay County, but we are right on the border of the county line, so I have no idea if it will flood here or not. There is no rain now and it's really calm outside, but the air is filled with this feeling of nervousness, knowing that the big one will hit tonight. I still have to get more supplies, but Rich is on his way home now and he will stop at the ATM to get money incase we need cash. They say the storm will hit around 8 tonight, so for now we have time to prepare. If we have to evacuate, I'll leave Duke in the bathroom with his food and water. We have 7 1/2 hours to go and the tornado watch is still in effect. Tampa Bay will be hit hard today, our apartment is stucco, and so I'm not sure how it will stand up to 75 mph winds.
Hayleigh called from LA and I told her to get a hotel and stay there, since this place will be a mess by the time she gets here. She told me she ran into some crazy weather in Texas. Ill try to keep you all posted with our situation.
