We are so thankful to have been spared the wrath of Hurricane Charley. It's path had been predicted to make landfall in the Tampa Bay area yesterday but instead it did so farther south and headed northeast, narrowly missing us in Sarasota. However, it has caused enormous devastation to other areas. We personally were not in an evacuation zone but thousands who were are now able to return to their homes. Today we are unbattening the hatches. Our prayers are for those who have suffered.
