How Bad CAN it BE?

OK, so how bad can it be after a Cat 3 Hurricane? There are now 3 million Florida homes without power! Our office building in downtown Naples has no potable water and no sewer. Hence this sign:




Here is the 1st floor bathroom....in the parking lot! Hey I'm on the third floor!
















When I came back from lunch...no place to eat..still hungry...my sandwich shop lost it's cold cases.....I saw this truck. Not only do I have to get ducky sanitized..but now I've got to get my jello molds clean!


The drive to work is fun too, many of the traffic lights are missing. During the Hurricane some one climbed up the poles and stole the lights...Fixtures and all... All that is left are the wires! So you have a 4 way stop. Which work well in light traffic with normal people but here we have the beginning of Snowbird season which means a lot of traffic and people who drive with their turn signal on for miles....4 way stop is more like a cluster.... well you know! It took me 1 hour to go 16 miles this morning!

Now they are saying we will get power restored by Nov. 22.... I wonder is that 2005 or 2006?

Where do I sign up for my Katrina debit card? All you can get is 1 bag of ice and three bottles of water. I want my $2,000!

If this were New York City would this story be on the evening news.... Millions without power!

I saw sporadic article about this sort of thing on the net this morning.

I hate it for you. At least you've got your health right :).

As a runner, you should be pretty efficient at using those port-a-potties : ) . . . must really suck though. Hope your ducky doesn't get too bothered by the sanitation.

November 22? Oh my!! What a bummer!

Oldman said...

Seeing those portapotties would probably give me the urge to go find some bushes somewhere.

i use the stairs rather than the elevators so it's a long way to go...

The weather report is getting to be the most depressing part of a newscast. I heard it should stay that way until 2020 so maybe rebuilding should wait awhile.

Is beach front real estate getting any cheaper?

David said...

If it gets any less bearable, I still have a room.

Glad to learn you've still got your sense of humor!

Cliff said...

Sorry to hear what happen.

I wonder who would steal those traffic lights. Are they going to sell it on ebay?

"Authentic Florida Street Lights. Barely Used. Almost New."

Yeah, that's not hard to track down :)

beach front property prices didn't go down. the prices are still cheap. you can buy a bare lot on the beach for $7 to $10 mill. i di see a compound for sale on gordon drive for $15 mil.
