When it absolutely, positively has to be there overnight.....

Turns out power was restored at work on Monday but I had an insurance adjuster coming so I didn't go into work until yesterday. Of course everybody had to tell their hurricane tales but one guy took the prize.

He didn't have a generator and the stores had all sold out by Thursday. He got on eBay, paid the "get it now price" and had it shipped overnight via FedX. They had it for him the day of the hurricane but they indicated it didn't seem likely they were going to be able to deliver on time. So he went and picked it up during the eye passage and they discounted the overnight delivery charge, he paid just the standard air freight!

It sounded fishy to me but I looked up his address and he doesn't live very far from Bush International. I know there is a FedX facility there, so its plausible. So if its not true, its still a good "fish-tale".

Power at my house was turned on this evening. Its sounds wonderful NOT to have a generator running!
