lj-tags: florida, hurricane, wilma, weather, walkabout, pictures, palm entry


you can see that I got off easy. news crews were all over, cnn, abc, fox,

etc. I was in a few background shots... if you saw a scruffy hippie-looking

giant in a red & black tie dye shirt and black knee-length shorts, you

spotted a scottsquatch!


winds bent street signs too numerous to count, blew out windows and pushed

over well-rooted trees. I've heard that there are 5 deaths so far, and I

feel for their families.


I saw a guy with a cold soda-pop... I asked him where he got it... his

joking reply was "the fridge, you can have my last one for $20"... I

responded with "you know how much gougers got after hurricane Andrew? A

13-cent bullet behind the ear." His friend laughed, and I smiled when I

said it.


I got a phone call from Wez, and she's doing fine, thank goodness, even has

running water. nice to hear a friendly voice. she still has no power.


benefits of all the downed palms... free coconuts! finally, a use for my

machete unrelated to home security!
