Krap, now Hurricane Mary!!!
Believe or not, and after surviving a near hit from Hurricane Irma, we are now in the bulls eye of Hurricane Mary! It's been just 11 days, give us a break!!!

All the best.
I would say something funny but we all know that hurricanes will become increasingly powerful and there is no telling what the maximum size and windspeeds will become.

RE: Krap, now Hurricane Mary!!!
It's been 40 days since we were directly hit by Cat 5 Hurricane Maria and still without street power. Electrical grid suffered catastrophic damage and more than 70% of Puerto Rico is still without power (from 100% the first 10 days or so). I have backup power from a propane gas generator 8 hours at night, but I won' risk connecting my system to it. 40 days without listening to music is way too long...

We all watched hurricane Irma and Maria on TV in horror, and the devastation of the British Virgin Islands, Puerto Rico and other islands unfolded.

I was hoping to hear from you and see that you are okay.

Hopefully, things return to normal soon.

Glad to hear that you are alive and are well enough off to miss music.

I heard about the dodgy Whitefish deal to repair the electricity grid. Now that it's been cancelled I presume it will take even longer. But I hope it won't be too much longer. I feel for you all.

I just read about that too. Sounds very fishy. I wonder if that is what Trump meant when he said that his government had been doing a great job, ah say great job, helping Puorto Rico.

I just realised, Trump is the modern equivalent of Foghorn Leghorn, including the funky red hairdo.
