Friday Wrap-Up

Shabbat Shalom: Friday Wrap-up (10/7/2016)

I am putting together this article a day early and scheduling it to post on 10/7 in the case that I do not have power after Hurricane Matthew comes through Florida. Scored a couple of suite tickets to the FSU vs. UM game, so hopefully the storm doesn’t put an end to what would otherwise be a very fun event. But most importantly, I hope everyone that has had the storm come through their areas is safe and those waiting for the storm to arrive be safe throughout.
