My son is a sheriffs deputy in Lee County (Ft Myers). Built a new house last year that survived Charley with only minor damage. Charley went about 20 miles north. Wilma, if she stays to couse will go about 20 miles south. My son will spend the hurricane on 24 hour duty. His wife and our grand children are riding it out at the house with friends whose houses may be more in harms way.

A long night ahead for us.

I hear you.
I live in such a vunerable area, I'm on a barrier island.
Our last serious hit was in 1962. Since we've had nor'easters that have done damage but nothing like a hurricane.
We're due.... and I say that with much hesitation.
My father lost his house last year in FL, my two best friends are in Palm Beach County and have bunkered down or left more times than they deserve.
You're in my thoughts .... be safe.
