So, It Was a Little Windy Friday

My work day begins at 7:45 a.m. so when driving into the office on Friday morning, things seemed a little strange. The sky had a hint of green and there wasn't much traffic. As I turned down Apalachee Parkway, things seemed a bit more odd.

As I got closer to the office, the more tree debris littered the road. Business signs were ripped off and the traffic light at Apalachee and Paul Russel Road was out (BTW - people, when a traffic light is out, treat it as a four-way stop). A palm tree by Staples had the top snapped off, piece of the Village Inn's front awning was on the ground and tree in the office parking lot was down.

If I didn't know any better, I would have thought a tropical storm ripped through the area.

Once in the office, it was as if I missed the memo about the office being closed. Slowly, my co-workers trickled in and at about 8:30 a.m., the power on our floor went out for two hours. Generators kept the bottom floor business going and we had electricity in our multi-purpose room.
At lunch, I snapped a couple of photos of some local businesses. At top is the McDonald's on Apalachee Parkway near Capital Circle, above is the LaQuinta on Apalachee Parkway.
