While everyone was cooped up in their homes feeling helpless, Floridians turned to social media to occupy time, stay in touch with friends and family, share photos and many even grouped together to fight against the powerful hurricanes with comical Facebook events.  During this time, our thoughts and prayers are with those affected by the powerful storm. The millions of people, thousands of businesses and a whole state in chaos.

The state, especially areas of Tampa Bay, were not nearly impacted as much as it could have been.  Maybe some of it is due to luck, to prayers or even to these fun social events.
