Smackdown Frances

Well, it’s 7:19pm and we still have power down here by Orlando International Airport. We had a couple of “burps” that made it necessary to reset every digital clock in the cave, but that’s been the extent of it. Our friends over in Belle Isle, about 4 miles away, lost their power at 4pm and haven’t gotten it restored yet. Progress Energy’s record in that area indicate it won’t be back on soon. Fortunately they bought a generator and are able to keep their food cold and a fan going to circulate air.

If I’m understand the reports correctly, Frances is making landfall further south than predicted. I believe that would mean we would feel less of her effects than expected. I hope so anyway.

I’m also hoping the power stays on until at least 10pm so I can tape Smackdown, lol.

    See, I didn’t say anything about Smackdown because I didn’t want people to think I’m a hick.

    But I guess now they know.

    Which reminds me, after the storm it would probably be a good idea for everyone here to introduce themselves.

    An excellent idea, David.
