More On Storm
Yesterday I briefly mentioned what we saw of the storm. Last night we watched several news broadcasts. Evidently the strongest part of the storm went over Tallahassee. Lots of falling tree damage to buildings and power. Some beach washout. This morning we drove about 40 miles into Tallahassee to get gas. Along the way we saw occasional downed trees along the freeway. Some from breakage and some from waterlogged roots. Into town to go to Costco. Went through several intersections with no traffic lights. Got to Costco and things looked normal. Gas station was open and a few people pumping gas. Saw a number of gas containers being filled in addition to cars. Costco store was open but neighboring were dark. After getting gas we went into Costco to get a couple of things. Saw lots of shopping carts filled with ice and charcoal and restocking of both going on. Several people buying lanterns. Recently set up aisle of portable generators for sale stacked two wide and about 40 long.
Costco was on aux. power. Much of Tallahassee was with out power and predictions of repair were as far out as two weeks.
Driving west of Tallahassee we saw some more wind damage and signs of lots of rain having fallen.
