Yup, yours looks more like a hawk moth of some sort.

My Dad used to breed these in the garage:

Nice ID work, Nikki!

FWIW, I hate moths, too, so this would have freaked me out.

i don't think so, just that they are generally native to tropical climates so most places in the US don't have them. i've seen them before anyways.

edit: also you can zoom in on florida and see it is only native south of Lake Okeechobee.
