I visited with a former student yesterday in Palm Beach Gardens,FL. He and many around him still have no electrical power or phones. This almost a week since the power went off last Friday. His area was hit harshly, although you can drive a few miles away and it appears nothing happened.
Now the beleagered state of Florida braces for yet a third major huricane that may in the end be the worst, Ivan.
Yet in the midst of it all here in South Florida the weather is beautiful and as idylic as one could imagine (for those of us who do have power and are by the beach).
