Irma Survivor

I grew up in NOVA area and moved to SWFL Naples Area in 2006. I was looking forward to watching the Caps Rookie Camp in Estero but understand why it was cancelled. I am reporting I am A…OK and Safe and for the most part the state is in good shape. I am one of the very few with power, and the only person I know that also has internet. Structurally SWFL is in good shape except for trailer parks.

I’m glad everything turned out (mostly) better than feared.

Awesome episode, Vollman’s predictions about the future really got me excited. I also agree with the discussions about about goaltending.
Can’t wait for my birthady, so I can buy an e-reader and HockeyAbstract would be one of the first e-book I’ll acquire.
