    apparently it is too hot for inside eating at Islander Grill @ LaCabana.
    at this week's owner's meeting it was announced that the Islander Grill would be closed for "in restaurant breakfast and lunch (maybe dinner too, I missed that part)" due to the heat wave.
    the Islander Grill is open on all sides, with screens and large fans inside. usually quite comfortable.

    so, yup apparently it is hotter than usual.

    I read that there is very little breeze. I am guessing due to the storms in the Atlantic.

    Four days ago the power plant(WEB) sent out a news bulletin stating that they reached an electricity production of 152MW, breaking the previous record of 142MW set in 2015. How high is this? Well, the average demand is 103MW and an average peak is 135MW.

    To give everyone an idea of just how much this is, neighboring Curaçao(50k more population), also broke their record a day later, producing 135MW in electricity. Which they stated was dangerously close to their capacity and immediately started to ask companies with generators to switch them on to help them with the demand. They even started warning about rationing electricity and cutting off power to neighborhoods for 2 hours a day.

    So, next time when you hear people talk ill of WEB and Elmar, remind them that Aruba has insane energy production capacity for its size, producing more energy than an island twice its size(proper planning). There was no talk of rationing here even though there was no wind(no windmill power) on top of going through a "historic" transition as they call it implementing new technologies and power generating equipment.

    Recap: soooo hot!

    A real feel of up to 115 degrees is CRAZY hot and something I pray I never experience. I thought it was very hot in August....but no where near this.

    Trip 38 booked for Feb! Cant wait.

    talking to an Aruba resident friend last night.
    she said, it is like Florida summer heat.

    ya, not great.
    here in Fla, we spend 2+ hrs in the pool and the rest at home in the airco!

    Last Sept when we were there I felt it was hotter than our usual March weeks. Less breeze as well. We are leaving in a few days for our next trip, guess we better be prepared!
