Make haste slowly.
So! There is an estimated 12,000 cars that are ruined in Key West. People here are suffering losses that are not being covered over CNN. We are not the Floridians that were not ready for 72 hours, and I actually respect Jeb for his admonishment (scroll down a bit). It isn't hard to do, it isn't a lot to ask of people. It's not expensive, nor unreasonable. Also? FEMA is doing a great job here. There is plenty available, and easily accessable. Scary as it is to have helicopters with nets flying in over the ocean, it's here.
And still? I love living here. Because moving hundreds of pounds of furniture and thousands of pounds of carpet and padding, one can still make jokes. I can talk the talk and walk the walk and say over and over that only the end of the world is the end of the world, and that yes there is work but it cannot all be done today, and tomorrow isn't that day either, and close the door in my office and cry for 5 minutes because I can't fix everything for everyone right now. I can't do a lot, right now - there are lists for things that need to be done everywhere, and I am on those lists. But the top of the list does not include begging people to come here on the backs of those who cannot get through thier days right now, have no mattresses to sleep on right now, are scared out of thier skin because they have no cars to get to work where there is no work to do right now. People who can get to work are spending 8 to 10 hours a day slagging out crap from thier jobs, and going home to slag the crap out of thier houses.
Pray and happiness to everyone.
