Local 10 cameras caught a group breaking into the Simon's Sportswear on Sunrise Blvd. and Powerline Road.

The group of about 8-9 people broke through the front window and were seen walking in and then walking out with stolen items.

The group then began looting a Footlocker and CashAmerica Pawn Store in the same area.

Hours later, the Fort Lauderdale Police Department tweeted that they had caught the criminals.
Feed 'em to the fucking lions.

Err.. let's not be hasty.
Even when Ed was looking straight down the gun barrel of Death, his modesty would not allow him to accept the Martyr's Crown he so richly deserved! (Of course, I speak of him in the past tense, as he is almost certainly deceased, in fact torn to pieces by the Evil Winds of Satan, by now.) Ed, your heroics in the face of utter obliteration will never be forgotten!

You're not doing too much reporting. It isn't like you're out working in the yard or whatever.

Get fucking reporting.

It's certainly attractive stuff. Who builds it?

Judging by the size of the plate transformers, which I take to be about 500 watts capacity, once that gets through all that lovely class A and AB circuitry, the individual outputs are about...100 to 150 watts.

Asleep by 10. Damage = one downspout ripped off and one unlatched and previously broken screen door ripped off.
Windy and wet here now. No power.
Need coffee. Gotta see if I can conjure up an inverter.

We really should compose a ballad to Ed's bravery. Twere I a man with words to do it I would myself, but alas. We need a bard.

I don't do ballads, and Haiku is so cliche, how about a limerick?

There once was a man from Myakka
Who had lots of guns with More Dakka
He rode out the storm
And kept puppies quite warm
and didn't act like a chicken going "bakka bakka"

(That last line was the best I could do on short notice)

My first limerick ( :oops: ):

I remember this old guy in Florida
Living in a house full of esoterica
A storm came in the night
And they had a great fight
But he drowned having sold his gondola

Manatee County

FPL crews are restoring service safely and as quickly as possible.

We estimate we will have restored power to essentially all of our customers along the west coast service territory by the end of day, Sept. 22, with the possible exception of areas impacted by tornadoes, severe flooding and other pockets of severe damage.

Total Customers in County: 184,900
Total Customers Out: 42,270

Geez bro fuck the electricity. How are all those fine firearms?

Oh and alligator is like really chewy chicken.

Edit to add: I just found out why the barrel of a gun is called a barrel. :)

I live to hell and gone. I doubt they can find me.
Thing is that I think a breaker tripped on my transformer so it requires a visit. Got notified that I had power but it was power to the transformer, not thru it, if you get the distinction. I re-reported it.

That's a heat issue. Put your circuit breaker in the freezer and try again.

Not me, I had your back! Doc X wanted to take your stereo, and I said, no way, wait at least another two days.
