The Morning After – Again

Like the last time – Frances – Hurricane Jeanne came ashore last night about 100 miles north of Miami. All we got was a lot of rain and wind gusts through the night; no power outage here in my part of town, and as the sun comes up, there’s some palm fronds in the street. Wind and rain bands continue to pass through – there’s a good one going on right now.

This time, the hurricane moved quickly and with more power than Frances, and there were a lot of people who seemed to be caught off-guard by the ferocity of the storm. Either that or they were still recovering from the last two.

The best news is that at this time there are no storm-related fatalities reported, but that may change, and the hurricane is still making its way across the state.
