Well I'm thinkin about you guys in Florida because I'm sitting at home rained out and worried about tommorow already. We were in the middle of a big clean up job when the rains started today. Needed to finish kinda bad, the money would have been nice this week. Now it loks like it may be Monday for the rain quits.:cry:

Know how you feel KCON1, we had 39 yards to cut today and tomorrow and only got to number 19 before the rain started pouring, things started flooding, and we had to stop. I am thankfull though because I was just watching the weather and it looks like tomorrow we are going to get a break between storms and have a couple of hours where we can work (if it's not to wet). Maybe I will get the rest done afterall.

Um who hired you to do a cleanup BEFORE a huge hurricane? Look at all the work you will get cleaning up after the storm. I hope nobody gets hurt.

Hey the Charlie is about 25 miles East of here in Orlando. All I can think of is all the extra work I will get Sat. Hope everything goes well for everyone else. I have taken everyones money in poker and we are going to jump in the creek next. So much for Charlie here.
