Last night's bad weather

I hope none of our regulars had any damage from last night's storms. We were without power for more than 12 hours, and got treated to a light(ning) show for about 45 minutes (or it seemed that long), but didn't get any damage. This, however, was roughly 5 miles from us as the crow flies:

Crap, here comes another hurricane season If I ever have to go through three in a row again I'll quit my job. Last time caused us over $6,000,000.00 in damage to the hotel and took me almost two years to completely rebuild. Naturally the owners wanted me to lay everyone off about half the staff. I told them that was not necessary. Instead I used them as part of the construction, cleanup, painting, etc, crews for less money then the contractors were charging me for laborers. The contractors were happy with is as there was a massive amount of work out there and no one could get enough help to keep up with it. Let's keep our fingers crossed for everyone in the path of bad weather.
