Charley missed us completely here in West Palm Beach but the news from the west coast is grim. Much loss of life and property. The scenes on TV, CNN and Weather Channel, are truly frightning. The devastation is extensive. We got lucky this time but there is already another tropical depression brewing south of us. It is a bright and sunny day as I post this thinking of our fellow Floridians in Punta Gorda and Fort Myers who have lost their homes. I hope they are taken care of quickly and effectively. The governor is visiting the area and I hope they take action to help those folks.
