Thread Name: What's the weather like where you are?
Subject: RE: What's the weather like where you are?
I was driving home from a music session in Pensacola last night, a trip which entails driving east on Interstate 10 for about ten miles. During that short stretch, I saw three or four convoys of utility trucks traveling westbound with their yellow warning lights flashing.
I was a bit confused at first since they were obviously emergency response teams from points west (Alabama, Mississippi, etc.) sent to help restore power post-Dorian, and Dorian was on the east coast. That meant either they or I was driving in the wrong direction!
Then I deduced that they had probably been pre-positioned outside the storm's anticipated impact zone (like in Tallahassee) and got sent home as unneeded when damage turned out to be less than feared.
