    Repurposed Dryer Drum

    Still haven't gotten a response from my high school buddy in Ft. Myers, Florida... maybe no power for his computer or to charge his phone... since he's dependent on a cell phone down there, he should have a car charger... maybe no local cell towers working... hope he's not in a shelter or...
