Back To Civilization

Traveling around Orlando’s East Side today I saw some returns to normal and some remaining problem areas. The RaceTrac down the street from me started the day off with no power and 3 OUC trucks on the scene. By midday they were back up and running. Several traffic lights along 436 (Semoran) were out; some had police officers directing traffic, others didn’t. The ones that didn’t were filled with people who either were ignorant of the “treat intersections with non-working traffic signals as a four way stop” rule or simply decided such rules were not meant for them. To the guy in the white pickup truck; yes, I was telling you that you were number one. Now go get a real driver’s license or some common courtesy, whichever applies.

School here in Orlando will be out at least through Wednesday. They may as well revert to a year-round school schedule and be done with it for this year. A friend of mine in West Orlando told me he and his family were scheduled to have their power restored on the 13th!

And so it goes as we inch our way back to civilization.

    Well, they are definitely going to have to get creative in regards to school schedules. Year-round school though… meh, not what I’m hoping for. They have quite a challenge there.
