Hurricane Charley Anniversary

By: oneshotww, 1:16 AM GMT on August 14, 2012

It was a Cat 3 and exited the state at Daytona Beach. I lived about 20 miles south of there and we lost power for seven days.I always remember this day in 2004 and I think of it as the beginning of two very active tropical seasons.

Fall Roadtrip

By: oneshotww, 7:13 PM GMT on October 25, 2011

Last year I didn’t get to do a fall trip, so we took a long weekend and drove up to the North Georgia Mtns. to see some leaf color. It was really nice and I recommend the area to anyone living in FL or thereabouts that would like a fall view without having to go too far. The weather was perfect - cool but sunny and NO humidity! We stayed in a little town, Dahlonega and went to the Amicalola Falls State Park, had dinner one night in the town of Helen, took the tr...
