    What’s in a Name?

    Just a few weeks ago, we had the worst storm of the year in South Florida. It is ironic and I suppose a commentary on human nature that there was no worry, no panic, no mad rush to Home Depot or Publix and no one was calling out sick. No nada nothing (as we say here in Miami). I didn’t even write a blog leading up to it. Why? The only reason I can think of it that we didn’t give it a name. If we had called it Tropical Storm Oprah, there would have been wall to wall news coverage with all of the above.

    Hurricane Irene Update 2 Plus

    The situation for us here in Miami and the Keys, and all of South Florida, has continued to improve. We now expect Hurricane Irene to brush by us off-shore with the most likely effects being similar to the typical strong thunderstorms we normally experience this time of year.

    Hospitality

    It is critical that a hospital remain a hospital during a crisis. A real hospital, not a warehouse, or a school gymnasium, or any other vacant space that converts to a general shelter. For better or worse, people see the hospital as a general community resource.

    Tropical Storm Emily 1

    It’s too soon to tell much as far as potential impact on South Florida, or anywhere on the East Coast for that matter. I think that it will be late Thursday before we have a reasonably clear picture.
