Chasing The American Dream

THE WILMA FILES. DAY 6. POSTING

Saturday, 10/29/05 8:00 a.m.
I'm here at Starbucks writing and posting away, iced coffee in hand. No power at home, but life is good.

6:03 p.m.
I'm posted out. You're caught up. I see a Pei-Wei restaurant which, I think, is a fast food version of PF Changs. I'm in. I got an email that there will be work on Monday. I'll keep you posted.

  • What a riveting account. Thanks for posting this. After the edges of Hurricane Isabel struck my parent's house (in Maryland) we were out of power for 8 days. We had no damage, but I remember how annoyed I was by the power outtage. Obviously, it was paradise compared to what you're going through. Good luck and hang in there. I hope ice gets there soon.

  • wow, it's a jungle out there! I like to think I played a small part in the scheme of things...being a lifeline of sorts to you via text messages. Especially mapquesting and texting the location of where to get ice. Chin up bro....

  • Hi Todd,
    You've really written a rivetting experience of your hour-to-hour journey during this hurricane. Believe me, once I started reading your Wilma Description- Day 1, I had to read all the parts, till Day 6, non-stop. The pictures in flickR were also like (A picture says a 1000 words).
    Hope your doing fine now. Your blog is really good. Hope the situation in your state gets back to normal as soon as possible.

  • Email about work? Are you sure it came through? Just kidding.

    I am glad you are all okay there. No power and Cold showers are good for the soul. Like rain, they let you know your alive.

  • Thanks for sharing your Wilma experience/ Its quite interesting and having never lived outside of the state of Minnesota I really have no concept of this type of storm. Nor the damage it can incur. Where are the pictures? I dont see any when I open your blog up. I am glad you finally have lights. Keep us posted PT. Be safe!!

  • I found the pictures. I just didn't look far enough down. They are excellent pictures. Isn't it strange how a magnificent tree can be pulled up by its roots like that? Such power!! Glad you are okay PT.
