I realize that the communities in SW Florida have much bigger problems on their hands than high school football - water, electricity, housing, food, etc. That said, it'll be interesting to see what affect Ian has on the remainder of this season. On the one hand, I know how important it will be the 'return to normal' and get the kids back onto the field for practice and games (for their mental well-being, to provide structure in their lives, etc.). On the other hand, I also realize that government officials have to prioritize resources.
I heard something on the radio yesterday about Lee County's power grid was going to have to be completely rebuilt. If true, who knows how long this might take. What affect will this have on the schools in Fort Myers and Naples?
All that said, I also know that some good stories will come out of this -- schools helping schools, kids helping other kids, etc. I look forward to hearing those stories.
second play was one of the questionable calls
Second play (QB zone read) took another TD
the pick 6 was called back
So difficult to predict the severity of upcoming storms and I will admit since officials usually err on the side of caution, I didn't think it was going to be this bad. I was wrong and hope the vast majority living in the direct path heeded the warnings and got out. Prayers for all those living on the affected coast for what they must be going thru as it even caused significant flooding in Kissimmee almost 200 miles away.
