Re: 92L Lounge

I haven't posted in a few years but this thread got my attention. I was living in South Florida when Andrew came roaring through. I was living at the Dade Broward County Line and the highest winds we saw were a steady 125 - 130mph with gusts above 155mph. The power was lost about an hour after Andrew hit so the entire night was for the most part powerless. I didn't sleep and was listening to my battery powered radio. The DJ said The Miami Hurricane Center had to be evacuated and initial reports coming in said Homestead was gone.

I was a F&I Manager for a large car dealership located near the county line and drove to check it out in the morning. There were 3 large plate glass windows shattered in the showroom and the entire detail area out back was destroyed. There was no power and we did not open however the next day we did. If you can believe it a guy came in and bought a Mitsubishi 3000GT. I told the owner something was not right with us being open and 25 miles south of us people lost there homes and were in dire straits. He told me he was already on it and that he had sent two tractor trailers loaded with supplies to the general Kendall and Homestead area. I sincerely hope this current storm is not another Andrew waiting to happen.
