Hurricane Wilma

Here are a few pictures I took of what Hurricane Wilma left us in South Florida.

This tree is just being held in that position by sustained winds. It's a small tree, so I guess that's why it held up.

This is a construction trailer that rolled over twice before stopping on the electric post. Somehow, it didn't knock down the post.
I took this during the storm. The wind is holding the shutters away from the wall here.
Always get gas before a storm or you risk ending up in total mayhem after the storm.
This is an electrical post that just snapped near the bottom. I don't know how the post snapped and the tree right next to it managed to stay rooted.
This is another electrical post that fell over. It's amazing how strong the winds are to be able to knock down these kinds of objects that don't have huge wind fields.

    Google to Start Scanning Books Again
    Google Inc.'s online book project will take an important step forward next week despite an increasingly nasty legal fight over the company's plans.
    I thought I'd pay you a compliment on your blog here because it's really good. I bookmarked it! I wish someone would give me some tips on how to create a blog like this...
    My blog/site is about surfing swim shirt rashguards, but it's nothing special really... covers swim shirt rashguards related stuff.
    I'm always welcoming advice...

    Thanks ~

    Hello,

    Are you aware that arthritis is the nations #1 crippling disease that affects more than 40 million americans. It's a little known fact that arthritis afflicts many people between the ages of 20 and 50.

    I suffered uneccessary arthritic pain until I discovered that there are a number of effective treatments to relieve your pain.

    You are welcome to share all the free information on fibromyalgia cures and other treatments I have gathered on how to reduce arthritic pain.

    Best Regards
    Emily
