Instapundit linked an interesting Wall Street Journal article - the Waffle House index.
It helps FEMA focus its recovery efforts.
"If you get there and the Waffle House is closed?" FEMA Administrator Craig Fugate has said. "That's really bad. That's where you go to work."
We went out to eat last Monday at a local Ruby Tuesday. They advertised a seafood special, but due to the storm they didn't have all three items in the special the oldest wanted.
Or several other menu items we wanted to try.
We're several hundred miles from the coast, but the storm impacted the supply chain to the restaurant we visited.
Food's a good place to gauge what needs to be fixed.
