Well, the center of Henri passed over Orlando about 9:30 or so. We had some very big thunder storms, but all told about .3 inches of rain NW of Orlando for the entire storm. It was one of the drier weeks we've had.
As to the wind, very little even during the storms.
It was certainly a let down after getting the prestorm jittes all week.
There was a poster on the last board about complacency, but even a die-hard hurricane watcher is getting that way. It's been over 40 years - Donna in 1960 - since hurricane force winds have blown over Orlando. In the 27 years I've lived here, we've had close calls all the time, but I am just beginning to believe that Orlando has about the same amount of chance of getting a hurricane as Atlanta. Could happen, but probably won't.
