As I was multi-tasking today, doing the miami beach real estate thing and ready to go into a webinar while entering new listings to our website, my computer screen went black and realized we had lost power. I went outside to see if there was an FPL truck working around my house, then called FPL directly to report the power outage and they told me they would check into it.
Of course things like this happen when you are the busiest. I totally panicked and thanks to my iphone and twitter, was able to keep my sanity. Twitter is a social network that worked as an emergency message board for me today and I am so thankful. While I felt totally disconnected from the world, a couple of “Miami twitter friends” were able to get me up to date with The Major Power Outage in Miami with live, to-the-minute news!
I’m writing this to thank my on-line friends Dayngr and MailOurMilitary for helping out. It’s great to see that there are helpful on-line Miami resources out there, people that are willing to give out a helping hand.
Glad to have our power back and thanks guys for helping me stay sane!
