    Here Now!

    Made it through JFK and AUA and arrived at CDM by 1. Holiday crowds and hectic pace but relatively smooth process. Lots of document checks and Jet Blue did not give out Customs forms. Did that at Immigration desk. Wonderful dinner at Twist of Flavors. Massive power outage sent everyone from Alhambra. CDM was dark, as was ABC. So very glad to be back. Locals are so happy to see everyone. Feels like normal. Claiming our spot on the beach. Ahhhh, finally!

    Was out with no power or water at Azure for 6 hours last night myself. Not a great first day, but hopefully better today. Most everything up this way had no power unless they had a generator.

    The whole island was in a black out. Someone I know got stuck in an elevator for a 10-15 minutes.

    Any idea if this is at all common or just one of those flukes? Much better day so far now. Can't go wrong with dutch pancakes!

    My friend said power in some places was out almost 12 hours...his house included. Others lost power from 4pm-11pm or so he said. No idea why though.
    Trip 33 begins on July 15.

    All the websites say that there were "errors" at the electric plant. I am told that it had something to do with 2 fuel pumps not working at the plant.
