and oh...I wanted to buy you dinner, so I was going to send you an M.R.E.

I guess that's been taken care of tho...

But they really are fascinating, the first few days anyhow.

Thanks for checking in 'Deer.
Glad you stocked up on Spam!

You know, this is so well written it should be on the Editorial page of your local paper.
You are such an excellent writer..
and much more informative than CNN!

Take care of you and those close to you.

We'll be right here waitin' for your return.

Sweet Balladeer, thanks for letting us in on what's happening in Ft. Lauderdale.
You know how happy I am that both of you came out safe.

Lots of knuffels en hugs my friend, I'll keep you in my thoughts.

Titia

Like scattered leaves...my words will flow

How's about an update you dear folks down in Florida?  Power yet?  Getting back to normal somewhat?  Been a very bad, bad year and my heart sure goes out to all of you.

Power came on last night for me. It was a long 11 days without it. There are still 200,000 people without so I feel lucky. Things are getting back to normal, sort of. There are still over 900 traffic signals out so the driving is still adventurous. Gas stations have basically re-opened since the station owners became smart enough to realize that if they bought generators to run the pumps they could make a lotta bucks. Stores are about half-stocked but getting better. Piles of debris still line the streets but they are working on clean-up - there is just so much it will take a while. Two of the nearby golf courses have opened up 9 holes for play while they work at cleaning up the other nine. In the very hard-hit areas there are still poles and transformers lying in the streets and those folks have a long wait for power. Schools will resume next week and there have been over 2,300 houses and apartments condemned in ft. Lauderdale. People have been given hours to salvage whatever they can and move out - to who knows where. Many have gone to the Red Cross shelters which are all set up in school buildings so when school re-opens they are out. My heart goes out to them.

Life goes on.....as does the recovery process.

Glad to hear you have power again and are not one of those asked to leave their home.  This has been one sad year for you all down that way, and I can only hope you all don't get a repeat of it next year. I imagine the clean-up process is going to be a long and involved one, but sooner or later you will hopefully be back to somewhat normal.  My heart sure goes out to you all down there, and thanks for updating us all.
