During Charley, Ivan, Frances & Jeanne - I found it doing a search for "weather forum". I live in Fort Pierce, within 10 miles of where Francis & Jeanne hit - during Francis, our septic tank alarm box fell into my raised garden...it was full of water when we were boarding up for Jeanne - you know that mad dash when the storm is gonna hit in 36 hours or less - my kids wanted to wash my car, (yes, anything! stay busy while us grownups freak out and board UP) When I stepped into the garden and touched the handle on the water, I was thrown about 10 feet...it was bad. I just got up and went back to prep...didn't realize how bad I was hurt till the storm was over...Couldn't say the name of things...like "purse" was "bookbag"....I had burns up the insides of my legs, could not speak properly for almost 4 months. Minor brain damage from the shock - I had to quit my job, didn't work for almost 2 years. Thankfully I'm (almost) back to normal...

Wow, I know it was along time ago now, when the site first started, I think I was on another storm board and someone recommended I check this one out. I am so happy I did and have never left this site since...Thanks for the years of information and lessons.
