    I haven’t heard a thing, mom. My brother lives in Sarasota, I’ll ask him.

    BTW you should fix the subject line–only one O in lose.

    This is a strange thing. I went to FP&L’s outage website. My sister, who is getting ready to leave the Tampa Bay area where I lived for years was just at the bank in St. Pete. This episode must have lasted for less than 25 minutes, according to where she was PUBLICLY. You would THINK that there was some accountancy for it, yet nothing shows any drop that folks there at the bank were saying affected from Panama City to Sarasota, basically a big central chunk of the sunshine state. Outside of some earlier rain, there were no climate events.

    Call me paranoid… there should be an accountancy for messing with the grid like this. No, I’m not posting in CS, damn it,.

    Hell, no... I'm not giving up...

    Probably just the Russians, Chinese, or Iranians sending a friendly message. No worries.

    I live a tiny bit south of Tampa, TECO Electric, no outage.

    I will not vote for a Vichy Dem. Period. As always, I decide who is a Vichy Dem.

      Maybe they were holding the map upside down.

      I feel much better since I gave up hope.

    Breaking where?  If it’s not on the internet it didn’t happen, you know.   (Joke)

    Debbie Scatterbrained Lush’s curling iron shorted out and blew the transformer?

    I didn't refuse to vote for Hillary Clinton because any goddamned Russian told me to. I refused to vote for her because she is a warmongering, election stealing, Goldman Sachs fellating, Republican WHORE. No offense to sex workers.
