It hit one hour earlier and three weeks after Frances did, and in the same area, around Sewell Point, in between Stuart and Jupiter, Florida. We lost power at 10 PM (though some to the north didn't lose it at all) and most of us have it back in my town. But I hear, as of 8:40 PM Sunday, 500,000 residents in Palm Beach County are still without power. My fiancee Marlene's parents, where we stayed, still don't have it.

Not a lot of damage, but I think Frances took care of a lot of stuff earlier. Then again, we couldn't tell which damage was which. Mostly trees and fences and shingles out here, worse out east and to the north.

Well I made it ok, just lost power, as usual. Strangely enough, my intersection is the only one without power in my neighborhood. Around 6am Sunday a gigantic oak, which I thought would have gone down in Frances, went down. Its limbs were so widespread, it actually snapped a light pole in half which ripped the line out as far as two light poles down, one of which feeds my house. I guess it was a big enough occurrence to have Channel 9 come down and video some firefighters attempting to hack it up.

Poor firefighters - it was still very gusty, and their training isn't really in tree hacking. They got the chainsaw stuck in the tree twice. They got about half done and I guess got a more important call and left. Tree's still there.

One thing I've come to learn from all these outages, is exactly where my power comes from - which direction and which exact line. Not that I couldn't have gone without having that knowledge. But hey, info is info.

I was without power for about a day. It cam e back on around 3 p.m.. I only lost two limbs in the tree out front. Frances actually did a good job preparing us for this storm.

I'm not sure what happened to Kyle, and Lisa seems to be flopping around in the distance as a weak tropical storm. It seems we're safe for at least a couple of weeks...

I finally have an adjuster coming out... for our Francis claim on the 8th. Still don't have power or cable, and my internet is like a yoyo.

Somebody email some Viagra... Maybe it will keep my connection up ;)

I have to go to FEMA for lost wages--almost $1500 between both storms. Sigh...
