 I've got from Fox News and the Weather Channel that 5.9 million people are out of power, Jacksonville has record setting flooding, the Keys are devastated with a present humanitarian crisis, although trucks are making their way down and the Air Force was to fly in aid at first light. Also, I ask DT to give a minute to the memory of 911.

Almost forgot that having made contact with one Keys resident, his request was "send more beer." Only in America.

I can be just as angry at the jihadists for wanting to kill me, as they are angry with me for being an American.

Actually that's pretty much a universal response IMO

Did you guys know that Florida requires that all electric/phone lines be buried?  So, no telephone poles, anywhere in Florida.  That means the damage was pretty bad in some areas.  Or that a couple of power plants got taken out.  Haven't been able to find out which.  I'm going to guess that the lights come on in Florida quicker than they will in Texas, though.  This sounds sort of cold but Florida has a lot of experience getting smacked by hurricanes.

As far a effects where I am, we got record setting cooler temps, they broke records set in 1944.  Temps were down in the 60's with a 10 to 15 mile per hour breeze with humidity in the low 50's.  We also got about 3/8th inch of rain.  Long sleeve shirt weather.  Temps are supposed to be back to the mid to upper 80's by the weekend.  And humidity will depend on which direction the wind comes from.  If it's from the north and/or west, the humidity will start dropping quickly.

They just came off the longest stretch of not getting hit since they started keeping records in 1847.

Plus, I think they down play what happens, their primary sources of income are tourism and retirement communities.
