Just happened to see the title of this post.....decided to see what is wrong with Ocala......think ya'll might be feeding a troll. Look to the right. 5 posts by stormtracker and her location is not listed as Ocala even though she states she has been in Ocala since 2004.

As for being from South Florida .......it lists her location as Dunnellon which is definitely not South Florida. Granted her profile says in past lived in Palm Beach, but the rant implies she and her parents were in PB for Francis( 2 or 3 weeks before Jeane in a hotel).

Stormtracker if you are for real it might be time to move out of momma's house and take that Business degree to a different area where you might find happiness. Why hate being somewhere when you could live anywhere.

As for the lack of concern for hurricames? Ocala is not on the coast. Hurricanes usually downgrade before they get that far in. Yes, they do still have some damage but even on the coast we tend not to worry so much about a storm that we get white hair. From experience of 2004 I can tell you that stock piling food did no good for us anyway......every can we had in our house here on the coast rusted when the rain and wind came in so we couldn't eat them anyway. We didn't have any way to cook anything, so we brought home chicken from Publix Deli for awhile or had pizza delivered. We all were back at work as soon as curfew lifted and ate peanut butter sandwiches during the storm.

And I have to say the people from the K-Mart in Ocala came down to help us people in Brevard. Those K-Mart employees fed our store lunch and dinner on the first and 2nd day after the storm. They took up donations and bought cold meats etc and drove all the way down with food and drinks. So my impression of people from OCALA are good people with big hearts! I still thank them and will always remember their kindness in that time of uncertainty for all of us here on the coast.
