Miami getting back to business as usual


It sounds like Miami is moving on, post-Wilma. Even though the power is still out in some areas, the airport is open, the mandatory curfew is lifted, and the New Cardiovascular Horizons Conference, which had be relocated to Miami from New Orleans after Katrina, began as scheduled on Thursday.

The CVB also reports that almost "95 percent of hotels and restaurants on Miami Beach and downtown Miami are open for business and receiving guests. The majority of hotels in other areas of Miami-Dade County are open; of those which are closed, most are due to remaining power outages. Most shopping malls are open for business. The majority of attractions are prepared to open when power is fully restored. There is minimal, if any, beach erosion in the Greater Miami area as a result of the storm."

And that, my friends, is all good news.
