Yeah, that one was pretty much no-friggin' joke. More to follow later, but most everybody I know is pretty much intact and happy to be that way. One friend of a friend got a tree through the house, but he and his family were away, so that's some kind of blessing. Still lots of issues with power, water, and fuel in general, but I'm staying with folks who have the first two and who live far enough on the edge of town that the third one will be more readily available when the need really arises later in the week.
Until I can find time to post again with more details (including an interesting thought or three about hurricane physics), y'all should really check out this Doonesbury from Sunday. Great punchline.
