    I'm SO GLAD you're safe Kat!! I thought about the guy's families, too, in NJ since it made landfall on NJ shoreline.

    I hope everyone on the East coast is safe. I remember how scary it was when all the tornadoes were hitting the Midwest last Spring.

    Living in Florida we know a thing or two about big hurricanes. Luckily it was just a cat 1. 4 or above is really bad. Hurricane parties on the beach are pretty fun if they are cat 1 or 2's, speaking from experience.

    I took a shower outside in a category 3 once. Our water and power had been knocked out so we just said f**k it, grabbed our shampoo and soap, and headed outside when it hit.

    I'm glad Irene wasn't too bad when it made landfall.

    A shower in a hurricane?! Isn't it cold? We used to do that in tropical cyclones (mild ones, warm rain) as kids, but I'm not going to nude up al fresco now!

    Haha no, it was actually pretty warm, but basically everything in FL is during the summer lol. I definitely wore a swimsuit though. I didn't want to get blown away and end up in some other part of town totally naked lol.

    That sounds sick!
    I'm from Orlando (Seminole County), currently residing in Jacksonville, you?

    I lost power for five days in Hurricane Charlie. 100 degree heat, no AC, never again.

    Tampa area :) But will be in Jacksonville on the 26th c:

    I forget which hurricane it was, but I remember my dad driving us all to Orlando to evacuate, just to have the hurricane turn last minute and hit Orlando. :( haha


    Don't lie, you know you'd like that. You dirty dirty girl.

    Oh, well have fun looking at nothing here! :p

    I'm kind of jealous that the hurricane skipped over Florida; I enjoy them in a strange way.

    Yeah it was pretty damn warm, I was out when it first started. Half my city was flooded because one of the damns broke. A bunch of rivers were definitely flooded but now its a wait and see on the Connecticut. Though I'm pretty lucky I don't live in the Berkshires because they were hit pretty hard. Though I'm glad Springfield didn't get hit as bad as a lot of other places especially after the tornado at the beginning of June

    A lot of people have asked me about how we're holding up and I'm just like... "Well I'm here, aren't I?" xD

    Tropical storms make me insanely nervous, though.
