I didn't see any boat riders today while I was there. It was pretty cool though, because the rain and the shutdowns chased everyone off, so i wandered around Orlando and came back after the storm had passed, and got to ride constantly. Was very cool, there were only 3 of us.
The big lake's cable control center flashed really bright at one point and there was a flash, but I don't know what happened there. Could have just been a static buildup and discharge there during the storm. That storm today though was gnarly, the Florida Mall parking lot had pools of water up to 8 inches deep, one of which I was parked in, haha.
Thanks for the responses though guys!
