Shakedown, 1979

I waited in line for 1 hour, 21 minutes to get gas today. And I ended up at that station because every place closer to FIU, closer to my house, or on the way from my kid's school to work was out.

Torrential rains last Wednesday caused flooding north of Miami (Fort Lauderdale Airport was closed for a couple days) and slowed gas trucks from getting through to Miami-Dade. There is enough gas. But people began panic-buying and hoarding (drivers filled multiple gas cans in addition to their cars), straining supply. They say it may be a couple of weeks before the situation normalizes.

Fortunately, our governor is handling the problem by threatening to build a prison and release prisoners next to Disney World.

(BTW, Steve: Include this in your list of great baselines).
