We are alive and well

Apparently, all of my good, charitable deeds did not go unnoticed by TPTB, because our house was one of the only ones to get power back almost immediately (read: 24 hours later). Many houses nearby are still without power.

Hurricane winds are scary, but you know what's scarier? Rednecks on TV talking about their mobile homes that contained their whole lives are now scattered over the nearest racetrack. And you KNOW you see a Velvet Elvis and one of those mounted singing Bass things in the background.

One neighbor's elderly father evacuated his South Florida shitbox (aka manufactured home) and came to his daughter's house. He did live through the night, but irony did strike gleefully, destroying his minivan by throwing a large tree on it.

I've been through wildfires, an earthquake, a blizzard, flooding, and a hurricane. Monsoons, meteors falling from the sky, random wild animal attacks, and frogs falling from the sky - that's what I have left to live through. I can do it.

I almost got blown off a bridge one time by a hurricane one time - not fun.

Why were you on a bridge during a hurricane? That's the more operative concern.
