just back from my second visit since Wilma to Palm Beach & to the Greenacres area. Power has been restored to most areas now. Schools are set to open next week some think. Gas lines are dwindling down now that power is coming on.

As for personal stories, I heard some nutty tales like people intentionally leaving their windows and doors open hoping for wind damage but only getting flood damage. Their goal: to get FEMA money (the 'Big Easy' as it is called down there since Andrew). Lots of local flooding, trees down everywhere, pool enclosures rifling through windows, tile roofs slung like cannons, things like that. We had 4 generators running to manage 18 refrigerators for a 32 home subdivision without power and another 3 generators running to allow one light per home.
