I don't really consider Sebastian as southern Florida, but am surprised at how much of Wilma made it into Indian River County. A little flooding and mostly tree limbs down. A few cases of worse damage (mobile home turned), but overall it was the little sister of Frances and Jeanne. The biggest problem has been power. A good chunk of people (at least in Sebastian) have well water, so many of us are without water as well. But, on the so-called "postive" note, FPL has been making repairs and supposedly, there's only 34% of us still without power. We're expected to get it, hopefully, by November 8.

Most businesses are open, most lights working, and school started back up today. It's somewhat difficult finding ice (Walmart and Publix seem to be the best source) and some gas stations in the southern part of the county have experienced long lines and some gas shortages, mainly because of those poor folks from further south who have to travel this far to get gas, ice, etc.

Overall, the county is looking good. Now if I could just have some electricity when I get home from work tonight, I'd be happy. This camping out in a house gets real old. I think the kids and I will go north and "camp out" in a hotel room and do laundry.
