    Winds here are picking up a little bit now... A few strong gusts... Luckily the NBC in Miami has sunday night tv shows on their website.

    As Colin and our friend Greg were putting up the boards, Xavier and I went out to the butterfly garden to check the milkweed for caterpillars. We found one little baby, and I just couldn't stand the thought of it getting blown away through the night.

    So now the little bugger (literally) is hanging out on the leaf of one of my homegrown milkweeds which I placed on our mantel in the living room. I figure he won't go wandering too far with his foodsource right there. Then I'll let him go after things calm down tomorrow or Tuesday.

    Yeah, I know... I'm a dork! LOL! :wink:

    Keep safe, everyone!

    Love, Kris

    Nope, hope to meet both of y'all someday. Didn't know y'all raised milkweeds for Cuban migrants. That's neat. :thumb: How big they get there? Saw some huge ones on St.John, USVI once.

    It's 7:30 am in Ft Laud... Our power went out at 4 am... but someone around me seems to have an unsecured wireless network still functioning... It's REALLY windy now. Even with earplugs, it go too loud to sleep with the wind and rain. I watched the last few transformers blow up, and light up the sky by the beach. I've been shooting some video, which I'll try to post later...

    We just got our power back on. It was out for about 3 hours. We're still having 35-40mph sustained winds. Just gotta say that FPL rocks.
