Zap, Zap, Zip, Poof........ hummm, silence..... ... ... ...

Today was almost an out of power so do not go to work day. The power came back on an hour in a half before I had to punch the time clock.

Dishwasher running check
Dryer running check
Dinner cooking check
Hot curling iron on check
AC cooling home check

Power outage during this process, double check. Oh oh, the traffic lights were our biggest problem with nine car accidents in a twenty minute time frame. Drivers who live in Miami treat the power outages as the Indy or IRL speedway challenge. Whoever gets across the intersection first without bumping any cars, "Wins." All of the MDCP schools were on lock down as well as other counties. When the radio announced “Bob from FPL”, I kept wondering if this was the same Bob who kept getting a gun shot sound after he gave a speech on the radio after Hurricane Andrew. “This is Bob from FPL, Boom.” Hehehe, we all agreed to this moment since we were sitting in the dark and taking cold showers.

We are expecting cold weather tomorrow night, plus rain. Somewhere in my closet is my leather jacket. This may be the one day of the year tropic folks can wear jackets and closed toe shoes.

Cold and rain - could make snow. Then again, it could just make for sliding through red light intersections and back-spray on the windshield. Dumb luck in driving isn't limited to large metropolitan areas - I heard the Drive-time Happy Hour DJ warning motorists to treat blinking traffic signals as a 4 way stop. This was because some folks thought they were suddenly driving in the Ocala 400 of Marion County. Go Faster!

Barefoot indoors, but subject to change as it gets colder. Forty-one degrees in Atlanta was one-sweater-balmy compared to the feel of the same temperature here. Must be the humidity ...

Upper twenties, WOW. Thats cold. I'm guessing your horse had a blanket to help with the chill.
