Hi everybody,

"My response to this survey is simply that it cannot be accurate. And why believe this kind of poll when you have the results of the referendum and elections to go by.

A simple fact: Regardless of what you think of the new constitution and regardless of what those voting in the referendum think concerning this document, it is a fact that each person voting is opting for the political process rather than any form of violent action"

I'm just checking on you after Hurricane Wilma. I hope you're OK.

Hi Tom, just hoping that Wilma spared you. When you get a chance give us an update and a boots in the mud perspective. Over here in Fort Myers/Cape Coral (35mi north of landfall) there's not much damage. Quite a few tree branches, but not too many tree trunks. Most of the road blockage was easily cleared by the people living next to it. Wheras Charlie took out everything over 30ft tall (either by tearing it down piece by piece or just simply pushing over the whole thing) Wilma was only able to break off the small and weak limbs. No big deal. Small stuff just bounces off. Compared to Charlie, Wilma was a wussie. With most population centers north of the eye there wasn't storm surge. I haven't heard from Everglades City. They were the mirror image of NOLA with the storm center off to the side and they being located at the end of a catch basin. To the north of the eye, we got a negative storm surge. I.E. The canal behind my house got sucked dry. We did get a lot of mini-tornados, far more than usual. You can tell where they were because every mile or so there will be a 200-300yard long by 30yard wide swath where a lot of trees got pushed over. All in all, Wilma was a weakling. The city and county had a map of responsibilities before Wilma even struck so that everybody knew exactly what to do when the storm was over. They even defined the instant when the vartious groups were to begin repairs (winds less than 45mph). They did a wonderful job. They are even going to pick up trash on time. Life will be back to normal for most people here by tommorrow.

Hoping the best for you and hoping that you friends and relatives in Cuba were spared as well.
