Friday Wrap-Up

Shabbat Shalom: Friday Wrap-up (9/15/2017)

The positive news in the wake of Hurricane Irma is that my homes in Fort Lauderdale experienced no currently known structural damage. The negative is that the storm seriously affected the grid. Only yesterday did I regain power and I have still yet to get my Internet and cable back. But overall, I consider it to be a win as long as everyone around me is safe, and I can gladly confirm that to be the case. I spent a few days with my family and my fiancee’s family and somehow survived that as well! It will be nice to finally see the Miami Dolphins hit the field this weekend, as long as I’m able to access the game on my flight home. Speaking of which, I’ll be headed to Las Vegas today for the Canelo-GGG fight as well as Olympia. Let me know if you’ll be in town.
