    O.M.G. I pray every year that these forecasts don't come true. I had friends come down DURING Tropical Storm Faye (which I still think was at least a Cat 1). I had to drive over and pick them up from MCO. I thought we were going to die on the way back over here to Daytona. It was raining so hard I couldn't see 2 feet past the front of my Jeep...on I-4! A couple days later we went to EPCOT, which was nice because it was intermittantly pouring off and on so we pretty much had the park to ourselves! We were prepared with ponchos! LOL~~!

    SAFE TRAVELS THIS SUMMER, EVERYONE!!

    I remember Faye. That's the one that dumped about 30 inches of rain in Central Florida correct? It wasn't quite that bad here in Southwest Florida.

    I don't remember how much rain we got. I think it was 3 years ago or so. I just remember it rained forEVER. And my friends came down to hang out and go to the beach and we couldn't LOL. I went outside at one point and was trying to put on my hurricane shutters in my swimsuit. LMAO!
