Well this isn't really a funny story given the like the others given the destruction that occurred but here goes. A number of years back PASS was at the Gaylord Palms in Orlando and we had a hurricane come thru a few days before the conference started. I had planned to come in a few days early anyway to play a few rounds of golf. Well the hurricane changed those plans somewhat as it roared right past Orlando. Anyone who was already at the hotel was pretty much locked inside for the brunt of it. I thought this was kind of ironic since the entire central part of the atrium area was solid glass panels 50 foot overhead. The wind and the rain was shaking and rattling the panels so much I thought they were all going to fall on everyone's heads. Many of them were leaking water during the peak of the storm and I remember they had guards at the doors to keep people in. All I could think of was that I felt like a prisoner and the prison was about to collapse :) . Well it turned out there was minor damage to the hotel itself but I am sure the guy parked outside my room was not too happy when he saw the palm tree that had fallen on his car. I did get to witness that from my window:).
