These photos aren't so great as they were taken through the car windows mostly. We drove through Punta Gorda on the Monday following Charley. Here's a few of the photos.

This first one used to be a gas station.

Yup Jupiter, the damage was extreme, I've never seen anything like it. It looked like a bombsite in many areas. A friend of mine is a reptile & amphibian breeder in Ft. Myers down the road from PG. He just had three big ponds dug on his land for raising some amphibians, and turtles. After the hurricane, it just looked like one huge lake.

beings: Nikon D100. It has its advantages :)

Frances is supposed to be on the way over... Cat 3 right now... speculation says maybe it'll get up to Cat 5, and come right up central FL.
