It was a windy beginning to the Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show as Hurricane Sandy blew by the southern Florida Coast. After closing a half hour early Thursday night the organizers decided the show must go on, and we’re back in business on Friday. Forecasts say the sun should be back out this weekend and the airports are all still operating so don’t cancel your plans if you’re coming down to visit the world’s largest boat show.
