The red thing is a bobber if your trolling for sharks!</CENTER>

It's been interesting the last day or so, a light breeze blew in from the west....... and kept blowing...... and blowing.....

Anyway, things are back to what passes for as normal here in South Beach. We are lucky, most of our power lines are under ground, so we got power back in the middle of the night. Cell service is still down for a number of carriers (we probably lost a lot of cell sites), it was reported last night that at one point out of 2,600 traffic lights in Miami, only 12 were working! My place at Southgate has some damage to the flora around the building which is unfortunate since I love to shoot here, but for the most part damage is very light and I have no damage at all. I'm sure others will post with more interesting stories but mostly we just sat back, had a couple of cold ones, and watched the wind howl. The little marina attached to the building had eleven boats, four survived. DanO (who was visiting, I did not charge him extra for the E-Ticket ride!) and I shot pictures of the boats as one by one they broke loose from their anchors and drifted away into Davie Jones' Locker.

<CENTER>
First the good news Captain, the anchor line is holding!</CENTER>

None of this is to minimize what happened, we were expecting at most a strong tropical storm and got hit with what in many areas was a category 3 hurricane. Between buildings you get a venturi effect which can accelerate wind gusts to unimaginable speeds. Here is a van which was lifted by the wind and literally blown tumbling down West Avenue were it came to rest on top of a car parked on the side of the road four blocks from Southgate. Usually this type of damage is done by a storm surge which moves cars and homes around, we had no storm surge here on the beach (the water is from a busted fire hydrant which the van struck). All of this was done by wind, and it takes a lot of wind to blow cars around like that. I've got pictures I will post later which have cars stacked two and three deep on each other, all done by wind alone. Fort Lauderdale got hit even harder than we did, the TV pictures are amazing, and yes, O-M-P has been driven off the air by the storm (undoubtedly the issue is power for their servers). For those who haven't been there, they are located in the Northwest corner of Fort Lauderdale.

Just a tumbling tumbleweed (Miami style)!</CENTER>

Anyway, live from the set of "Sea Hunt", this is the Fish signing off!

Glad you survived the cane with minimal damage,...and I guess that clears it up where 0mp is located.

Glad to see you are okay. I lived in Boca when Andrew came through and I now have a much deeper respect for what nature can do.
