Just a quick update. Here in Central Fl a lot of us don't have electricity. We lost ours Sunday night around 9pm. Most major roads in the Orlando area are in good shape. Had to go to work this morning and the I4 corridor was moving well. Temps will be in the mid to upper 80s today, back over 90 starting tomorrow. That will suck without a/c.
Yes you can't fix stupid Mike. It's a popular past time here in the U.K. to drag the dying embers of your disposable BBQ inside the camping tent for warmth. Once again, young kids seem to be the main victims. Fortunately, warnings are now emblazoned on the cartons of these things and i just hope people bother to read it.
All okay here, no damage.
Was well prepared.
No power, phones, etc. for six days. Restored around 5:00PM this afternoon.
Had a small generator to keep the refrigerator and freezer running, but it was rather unpleasantly warm.
