Hurricane Charley slammed into southwest Florida...

Hard to believe it's been FIVE years already...

We did a video about it called Charley's Aftermath. You can see it at:

My wife and I were the last people to visit Cayo Costa Island State Park near Punta Gorda the day before Charley hit. When we got back to our hotel that night we had a voice mail from the hotel management saying we had to evacuate by the following morning even though, at that time, the storm was supposed to hit Tampa.
