    Re: Power off from Orlando to Miami

    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.

    Thanks for asking. There were no traffic incidents in Aventura, other than local mall crazyness. Our city is usually unaffected by power issues, but we did not have internet until later.

    Re: Power off from Orlando to Miami

    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.

    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!!

    Re: Power off from Orlando to Miami

    Meaning the design or the patrons?

    I've only been to the Grand Lux Cafe at Aventura and their service is absolutely horrendous.

    Patrons my dear, patrons. All Cheesecake Factory restaurants look the same.. no matter if you are in Hawaii, CA, FL or even... Vegas.

    Does WDW have it's own power plants or does it draw from the civil grid?

    WDW Webcam is NO longer live. It is a virtual webcam. Check out the fine print above the webcam window. Disney stopped doing it a while back.

    Re: Power off from Orlando to Miami

    ^^ 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.

    Wonder what I do for a living?

    Arrow Re: Power off from Orlando to Miami

    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.

    Re: Power off from Orlando to Miami

    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?

    ^ Yeah, but you have to go to the "death mall" in order to eat at either.

    You didn't need it today. The weather is nice and cool today.

    And as for Aventura Mall, we hardly ever go there - and we're about three blocks away.
