So the County, my employer, decided to take over operation of the hurricane shelters within the county borders, and further decided that the library would be the ideal source of county employees to work in those shelters.

This means that I had to report at 8:00 AM on Friday -- which was _supposed!_ to be my day off as I had already worked five days last week (starting on Sunday) -- to one of the local High Schools for shelter duty.

The school was told that they were expected to accommodate up to 5400 people, but actually "only" about 1400 showed up.

Monday morning, after the tropical-storm-force winds and risk of tornadoes passed, we were released from duty. I got home to no electric, unfortunately. Then I had the rest of yesterday and today to recuperate a bit, and the power came back, at least so far, at lunchtime. (Please let my power stay up!)

So I'm safe and probably back at work tomorrow.
