Hurricane Katrina – Part 7

Coral Gables is getting some pretty hefty rain bands and wind squalls right now, and there’s been some power flickers, so this will be it for the night. Here’s the 8:00 p.m. radar picture;

See that curving band of orange and red at the bottom of the tight green swirl over Miami? Well, that’s where I am. I’ve heard some things going bump in the night, but a quick survey shows that everything is intact — except for the loud explosion I just heard outside. Ejole! The lights are still on, so if it was a transformer, it didn’t effect my grid. But I’m not taking any chances, so good night everyone, and I’ll see you in the morning,assuming there’s still power to boot up with.
