Frances just showed up

Got our first glimpse of the storm here a minute or two ago. The wind has been whipping pretty good, but the first downpour started and dumped a bucket of rain on us. And the power has already gone out briefly. Joy.

    Hmm, you must be a customer of Florida Progress Corporation, formerly Florida Power.

    Our electricity flickers on and off during a clear spring day, effectively dooming us for outages during inclement weather.

    We were up in a day or two last time, so I will cross my fingers for that level of luck again.

    Same here. We were back up the next day.

    I guess I spoke too soon on the storm. That was just an extreme outer band. The rest of the storm is still hours away. Hurry the hell up, dammit!

    We were lucky enough not to lose power during the last one, just a flicker or two. Not sure we’ll have the same turn out this time around.

    My thoughts are with you all, my family, friends and blogbuddies in FLA. Hang in there and please keep us updated if/when you can. This is a great source of info for us worrywarts ;)
