You may have heard: we had a hurricane. And I’m glad to tell you this is NOT a photo of our place.
This is more like what the damage looked like around our place. Austin tells me he lost the cashew trees and the sapadilla (“sugar plum”) trees – and that’s about it.
But the power is still off. We have a small generator for running the incubator. Will it be enough to save the hatch? We’ll know by tomorrow. And how will the following 2 weeks’ worth of eggs do? Probably not well at all, but we’ll see.
Anyway, I thought you’d like to see this.
The Washing Machine.
The Washing Machine with its Power Source.
The Rinse Cycle !!!
I thought I’d do laundry every day, but then I kept hoping the power would just come on and I put it off. Two days ago the power was restored up to Mahen’s Export, only 1 km. away. Thus far and no farther….
Alas, now the communal water tank is empty – no power to pump it. We will try with our little generator, but I’m not too optimistic. Anyway, I’ll go back to the “Laundromat” this morning, I guess.
Last shot for the week. The only damaged house I saw in all of Valley Road – down near the water treatment plant on the way to town.
A bunch of people came to stand in the door as we were taking the photo. Made me feel guilty, as if I were treating their disaster like entertainment. So we stopped again on the home with some groceries.
And now I realize, I should have bought myself another Victory Bar (laundry soap). Drat.
