Irma Clean Up: Orlando slowly begins to return to business as usual

People have never been so happy to see a 7-Eleven open! That was one of many scenes in the Orlando area on Tuesday, in what they're calling ''Irma Clean Up - Day 2 ". 

We've been here since Sunday night ,when we had a real white knuckle drive south from Jacksonville to Central Florida in heavy heavy rains and winds.

Sunday night was the worst, lot of storm and wind damage. Monday and then today were basically hot, dry, sunny and muggy...you know, typical Florida. 

What of course is not typical is all the downed trees, power lines, branches, and everything being shut down and deserted. 

That isn't the case anymore.

Schools are still closed, but Disney World, Universal Studios Orlando, the airport, restaurants, and markets are re –opening, and people are leaving hotels.
