South Orlando, where I am, was not affected. I was at the MK this afternoon as well before the major storm hit and it was up and running just fine. Even the horrible "Scream Along with Mickey" show played while I was there.
There were some stoplights out earlier this afternoon while I was on property (I left T-Rex area around 1ish I think, and at least some lights were down then). I had been wondering why it happened until I received a call about the outage.
There were no traffic incidents in Aventura, other than local mall crazyness.
So just a normal day in Aventura, eh? I despise driving down I-95 and passing Ives Dairy Rd because it backs up so far onto the highway. Then again, Biscayne Blvd aint much better. It's just too bad I like the mall a lot. ha ha!!
^^ I'll agree that they have similar design elements, but the CF at the Hancock Tower in Chicago looks very different than my local one at Boca Town Center. Similar materials and such, but completely different design.
I never noticed that the Cheesecake Factory in Aventura was the "gayest" in FL...
CF in Coconut Grove seemed much "gayer" to me if you put it that way. I would give the title of "CF with the longest wait to get a table" to Aventura, though. And to me, at least the exterior of the CF's I've seen look different and unique. Just look at the picture of the one that just opened at Anaheim GardenWalk, for example.
Anyways, looks like the power outage was caused by a fire at a local plant. Everything is back to normal now, although we still dont have AC at our house.
Outages caused by mechanical failure to two nuclear power units at the Turkey Point facility, according to a spokesperson with Florida Power & Light. Parts of Pinellas, Pasco and Polk counties affected
We never lost power at work and we don't have a generator. I never lost power at home either because nothing was flashing when I came home last night. Then again I'm with Progress Energy so maybe they weren't affected?
