Chris,

Welcome to our little corner of SC insanity:D It sounds like you purchased yourself a nice SC. What color is it? You never mention the color combination. I have to agree that the ride from Las Vegas to Orlando was a long quiet drive without a radio to listen to. Your singing voice must have improved after that drive:)

Again, welcome and congratulations on your new acquisition. We'll have to get together in the future and check out your SC. With cooler weather coming in several months, there will be some local car shows to attend.

We didn't even get one drop of rain here in St Pete. I was looking to having a day off from work and just hanging inside with the kids in a cool storm. Maybe next time. Stephen

We're doing ok. Man this is the most rain I have ever seen at one time. Some areas over at the coast had in excess of 24":eek: We had 12" yesterday alone. I don't think we have a drought problem anymore:D

I've never seen that much rain EVER. My friend down
the street walked out on her dock 6 AM Friday morning and by the afternoon it was covered. She estimated that the lake came up 1 foot in 6 hours. And the worst flooding probably won't happen until Sunday 'cause the St. Johns moves so slow.
I'm just high enough where I don't believe I'll be directly effected, but it
will take weeks to dry up my property.
On the bright side, the sun is out today!:D

Yep, Getting a big one on the west side today.

I was thinking about you, bet you have some standing water out by the shop area. Hope everything stays dry out there. Our lake has gone up about 15Ē but is still about 4 ft. down. So ship us your water to the west a little.:D Raining like hell out here right now.

this storms brings back memories here in Houston in 94' i believe..tropical storm Allison came ashore wiggled around a few days and stalled.
upwards of 40 inches was recorded downtown.
to date this is the only storm to have its name retired.
be safe out there.
