Somehow South Florida dodged a bullet as Irma went west rather than north. I still received 100 mile an hour winds in gusts as the bands passed over us. I lost power for 5 hours, in which I napped, read my kindle and contemplated the human condition.
I already took my hurricane panels down and am waiting for the street to be cleared of downed trees.
Broward County Florida was under a curfew until today 10:00 am, so I may go out and about today, all schools and government offices are closed. Fort Lauderdale Airport opens tomorrow.
There are still many people (millions?) without power.
I probably will return to work tomorrow, depending on road conditions.
All is well!
