Default Re: Wilma Could Turn CAT 5

My roommate and I live in Pembroke Pines, Broward County-- one of the worst hit areas. Our house survived with extremely little damage, thanks be to God. We lost or have damage to every tree on the property (as do most people in the area), and we have damage to one overhang in the back of the house-- but nothing even worth filing an insurance claim over. We lost power Monday morning at 6:30, and just got it back on sometime between 5 and 7:00 this evening. Nearly 6 days, in all, but we had a generator and a connection with someone who works at the port, so we were able to get gas after our initial supply ran out. Still, about 70 percent of the county is without power, and only 30 of nearly 300 schools have electricity.
On the plus side, the other night we were standing outside looking at the sky-- it is absolutely amazing how beautiful the night sky is when nearly 100 percent of 22,000 square miles of land is in the dark. I was completely awed by the beauty. I even saw a shooting star!

"To have the right to do a thing is not at all the same as being right in doing it." -- G.K. Chesterton

"Doing the right thing starts at the beginning of the day, not after you've been caught." John Crichton, Farscape.
