Carthik Sharma and other Floridians

September 3rd, 2004

Though an off topic post, Carthik is a dear friend and a great WordPresser, so I think this is appropriate.

My thoughts and prayers are with Carthik. He goes to school at the University of Central Florida and is preparing for the tropical storm Frances. I wish him luck and hope that he comes out of this natural disaster unscathed.

Same goes for the millions of other Floridians. This has been a tough year for them.

    I am glad too, you probably haven’t heard of me yet, but I have a wordpress blog at I just launched it recently. I am from Jacksonville Beach, we had some nasty weather here, but we were lucky. The worst that happened for us is no power for a short time and a swinging stretched power line down in the front yard.

    As someone who will be be opening a shelter in an hour, and is expecting to spend the next 72 hours there, I appreciate the sentiment. The only thing we can do is prepare for the worst and hope for the best.

    As someone who’s been through 5 hurricanes and with family now in both Tampa and Sarasota, the safety of those we know (even if just virtually) as well as those millions we don’t should be in all of our prayers this weekend. Believe me, when you’re in the path of one of these awesome monsters every bit of good thoughts help.
