Wilma's aftermath 10/25

Apparently West Palm Beach took a harder hit from Wilma than originally estimated. Florida Power and Light (FP&L) reports major damage to the power distribution system at the major stations. Power is still out in most areas, and the airport is closed indefinitely. So are the schools. Boudicca’s well piping has been repaired, but without electricity it doesn’t help anything.

At least they had no major structural damage, or even worse, someone hurt!

I know Bou, she is prepared.

Best wishes to them!

Again, have her contact me. I left messages on her cell phone. I am one of the few with power. She can bring over her dirty laundry!!! Though, it is gorgeous outside, I bet she can't keep the kids in!

I thought that her husband had purchased a generator?

What a mess! I'm glad they got the well pipe fixed... but I know this has to be so hard for her. Hope she gets power back soon - but it doesn't sound to promising... *sigh*

E mail is still down for me. Why the heck is my server in South Florida?

A buddy of mine works for a major cell phone company and used to live in New York.
They tasked him with creating an "alternate center" for their network control center in case something happened to New York. They chose Tampa, Florida. He lives in Tampa now and is still cleaning up.
When I visited in Feb., we laughed at how stupid his bosses are. We're still laughing.

DE644- He purchased a generator that runs on LP, which means I have to have a frickin' permit... thank you Palm Beach County... that takes 6-8 weeks. Love that.
