I have no idea what they will do with the damaged trees, or when they will get to them. It's the same way here in Boca. My travel time to and from work has been doubled, too, but like you it gets a little better each day. Our schools re-opened today, as well. The funny thing about the trees is that some companies have started stringing up their holiday lights, although they haven't been turned on yet. I look around and I see dead trees or trees that have been snapped in half wrapped with holiday lights. It's going to be a very funny looking holiday season. Sandy, do you know any hotels in Broward County that are accepting the FEMA Short Term Lodging payments? I'm asking for one of my co-workers, who lives in Tamarac. The roof of the apartment building that he lived in collapsed, and all of the residents were displaced. FEMA gave him a registration ID number and told him that they would pay for a hotel room for him and his family while he looked for another apartment to rent. Unfortunately, FEMA was not able to provide a list of hotels participating in the program. We've been trying to call hotels in the area, but none of them have heard of the program or are willing to give a reservation based on a FEMA payment. Since you live in the area, I thought you might know of participating hotels. If you have any info could you forward it? Thanks!
