    Hi from S.Florida.

    Whats up everyone. Finally able to get on a computer down here after a week of this nonsense, still no power or phone plus a tile fell off my roof and broke my water pipes outside my house. Staying with my in-laws since I have to go back to work tomorrow and they have power. I live over in Tamarac and have not seen a FPL truck in our neighborhood at all in days, hopefully they restore us soon. Hope everyone else from S.FL is doing alright....talk to you all soon.

    Thanks Jumba, and I have been drinking all week, we even resorted to drinking Coors and Miller out of cans at one point.

    Not us, we were stationed in our small bathroom under the stairs with blankets, flash lights, and a television. I video taped through the peep hole on the front door during the 2nd half of the storm, the howling of the wind was insane.

    i'm in Coral Springs, and we sure as hell thought it was gonna be another nothing storm. We lost our entire screen enclosure, some roof tiles, and power didnt come back until 11:50PM Thursday night 10/27.

    Not scary just annoying as hell b/c of the power situation.
