Subject: RE: Aftermath
Made a run from Pensacola to Atlanta and back yesterday to help my step-daughter & family move. Much of the traffic southwest-bound on interstates 65 & 85 was utility and tree service crew convoys. At one point on the way home we were passed by a convoy of around 20 ambulances doing about 85 MPH with flashers and strobes going.

There were also lots of private individuals with pickup trucks and utility trailers full of generators, coolers of food, jerry cans of gasoline etc. We can only hope they were all concerned relatives and good Samaritans, though some of them doubtlessly were low-life price-gouging scumbags who have no compunction about selling a $150 chainsaw for $500.
