It’s beyond me how a decade has already come and gone since our community was devastated by Hurricane Charley that terrifying Friday the 13th in 2004. Everybody remembers where they were and what they went through and there is no shortage of incredible stories to tell. Like a few physical reminders of the storm that we can still see today, the memories will stand the test of time as well.
I’ve kept a journal/diary for 35 years now and got to wondering what I may have written about August 13, 2004, so I dug it out and decided to share some of what I recorded then for a column for the anniversary. What is in quotation marks is verbatim and anything else is me writing today.
