Recovery Proceeds Apace

Power was back on fairly soon after the storm and internet is no longer twitchy. 

Isaias was a remarkably energetic event in contrast to what was expected. 

Hampton Roads was on the eastern side of the thing as it ran north and its 20 to 35 mph forward speed was added to a wind speed of 60-70 mph when it arrived here. Add in a few tornadoes and the intense rain and the storm was able to make its passage known.

I do have a bit of advice for Americans who live in disaster prone areas. The day to order your 95-150 pound generators is not right after the storm comes and cuts your power. Also try to not order those on the same day that 30,000 other people did. Your UPS driver will thank you and your order won't risk being delayed by choking the system with huge boxes that fill up all the trucks. 

Note that my center did get all the packages out without rolling over or delaying anything, but it was a near run thing and, anyway, it's the thought that counts.

Just saying. 

I'm going to ice my back now.

1 Bit of spackle, spot of paint, she'll be right.
