The power started flickering yesterday with the high winds, and at this point we have shut it off at the breaker, because we are getting insane power surges. In our bathroom, three bulbs popped, and the last one was shining at approximately the rate of a 100 watt bulb: it is rated for 40. It too gave up the ghost after while. We have most likely lost most of the appliances, a clock CD/radio, and an assortment of power surge bars and light bulbs. FPL has yet to do anything about this. I'm posting from the Library while I wait for my cell phone to charge: it seems unharmed, but it did not charge overnight because of the power flares.

But we are alright, despite Scott having a power strip explode and melt in his hand when he attempted to turn it off.

Our power was okay with the winds... but the yard wasn't, nor were many of Port Suck-it's stop signs. They blew over.

Lost as in irreparably damaged appliances? As in... small appliances or large ones? Like, is the refrigerator included in this? The oven? Or just the likes of the toaster oven? Are the computers okay?

Also.. do you need a toaster oven or microwave or coffee maker or the like? Because I can loan you mine if you need them. Mine aren't currently being used, and if you're without, then dangit, use mine!
