Well… here it is… my first Metroblog. I’ve been thinking that maybe for my first post I should keep things simple… kind of a hello / how are you? question and answer process. I know we’re supposed to write a bio but bio’s are so pretentious… I think mine says something like “professional idiot and obnoxious fool”.

Fire Season

Fires were raging west of Miami and Ft.Lauderdale yesterday closing Alligator Alley for several hours. Tonight’s storms may make things worse – with lightning strikes on the tinder – dry trees. Photo by Miami Herald.

Sand Castle

My younger son and I built his sand castle at Palm Beach this weekend. The whole thing takes about 15 minutes – providing hours of joy until a beach battle or the tides knock it all down again.

Mar A Lago

A sneak peek over the high wall to The Donald’s house in Palm Beach this past weekend. Purchased for $5 million in 1984, it is now a private club for anyone with $200,000 to join. Beach cabanas start at $1000 a day. Mr. Trump and his latest wife and child spend many winter weekends there.

Water Rationing

This has been a very dry dry season, even with the occasional showers that pass by. Right now there are Phase One water restrictions – watering and washing of cars only on Sunday, Tuesday and Thursday for even numbered houses and Saturday, Monday and Wednesday for odd numbered houses – and only between 4 and 7 AM. As I write this there is a huge downpour outside, so the grass should look greener in the morning.

Fisher Island

We also passed Fisher Island. In order to get here, by ferry or personal yacht, you must be a resident or a guest. Houses and incomes are all in the millions.
