Back To The Grind

Well, it's back to "normal" here in Miami. My flight arrived early, and my bag was the third out at baggage claim, so I was out the airport quite fast. Then, to face the aftereffects of the hurricane. My wife had been staying with her mom away from the beach, and she discovered, when she went by our apartment on Miami Beach yesterday afternoon, that the place had been without power since Thursday night. We were told that our power was expected to be restored by Tuesday the earliest, Friday the latest, meaning we are stuck at my mother-in-law's house for now.

There was no major damage, though, and things are pretty much back to normal. There's still a lot of cleaning to do all around the city, but except for 40% of the county being without power, all the major kinks have been ironed out. My prayers go to those in Louisiana who are facing a Cat. 5 Katrina, not the Cat. 1 Miami saw. People need to understand that a hurricane is a hurricane, period.

I still need to finish uploading the entries from PR, as well as some photos I took. I'll probably post a hyperlinked index once I've finished all that. It will be slow, as I'm without power at home, and only have internet access at work, but I'll get to it.
