As my generator chugs outside I sit at my computer. I know I am doing much better then most but not better then some. Seems its going to be a while till power is restored after Wilma. I waited in line for an hour yesterday for gas only to find that they ran out right before it was my turn. Luckily I have a buddy that works at a gas station that was able to hook me up. (its not what you know but who you know) Until they have power the stations just can't pump. Then again the Port hasn't opened yet to bring in more gas. Things seem to get getting worse here in Miami. Everyone is driving around like nothing and then fighting at the pumps when there is none left. I hear more and more reports of police getting called in to help with crowds at the next station that gets power and can pump for a while. I think I was able to get enough to keep running for a few days to keep my pulpo happy and to keep the fridge running. As I am getting ready to turn off the generator and turn on the battery powered bubbler for the night I just want everyone to count there blessing as I am counting mine.
