Still no power at my place tonight, so I spend one more here at Danny's. (Beats going black to a dark, hot shoebox.) There's still a wind advisory and a flood watch, but the worst of Frances is over. Wind and water still whistles and batters the outside.
We all went for a midday wet-walk to the gas station, and around the lake to assess damage, and breathe some open air. It's messy here, with a number of blown over fences and snapped trees, but the houses look ok and everything seems mostly intact.
Cell phones are still kaput here, and the land line is spotty.
The Winn-Dixie was open, and people were in and out... not crowded, but had a lot of movement. I think that we're going to get some Chinese Takeout for supper tonight.
The Gamajin movies were a huge success.. Everybody liked 'em, and power only blinked a little bit while watching them.
I wonder how the TV news is able to have so many reporters on the coast... they must be placed just far enough apart up and down the line so that they can't see one another's show-lights.
I've got about 150% the hits in the first three days of September over the entire month of August, thanks to the hurricane, I'm guessing. (averaging 1813 hits an hour??)
Dear Hurricane Ivan:Best Frances Photo so far:
Leave me the hell alone. I want to spend next week at my own damn home. Please just shoot North, and harmlessly spin some fishies.
I missed the JLU episode I was really wanting to see.. the one with the Question. I'll have to seek out a torrent of it when I make it back to base.
