Day 92 #afterMaria — finally, signs of progress on the power front. A crew is working on the power line next door! We‘ve had power for only 12 hours since Sept 6 when Irma hit. Fingers crossed!

cathysaid Been thinking of you and @WanderingBookaneer this week. The airport here in ATL lost power for around twelve hours. Flights grounded. Terminals dead. Mass chaos and media coverage. And all I could think was that many in Puerto Rico hadn't had power for over three months, yet here twelve hours was made to sound tragic. I'm glad you have the glimmer of hope! 2y
Leftcoastzen Oh please ,oh please , I hope they get you up and running again. 👍 2y

Lynnsoprano Keeping fingers crossed. We drove through the Florida Keys two weeks ago. It‘s still a mess in many places, and I couldn‘t help but imagine how much worse it‘s been for you. 2y

Day 84 #AfterMaria — still no power or internet at home. Back on generator power at school, as service here went down (again) yesterday afternoon. It doesn‘t feel like Christmas. It feels overwhelming. 😔

Thank you so much, @britt_brooke , for the lovely #LitsyPenPals package! Both @WanderingBookaneer and I have wanted to read this book for a while. And the cat goodies really made me smile! You‘ve really lifted my spirits on this 67th day #AfterMaria (still no power 🤷🏻‍♀️). 💜💜💜💜💜💜💜

JenP Still no power? 😢 2y
CouronneDhiver That is so incredibly sad... im sorry that PR isn‘t getting the help it deserves 😿 2y
britt_brooke Hope you both enjoy the book! It‘s a really lovely read. That you all still don‘t have power is just insane. So sorry you all are having to go through this. 💚 2y

Day 61 #AfterMaria - Flash flood warnings again as it continues to rain. Power back down in many previously recovered areas. It‘s very disheartening. Plus the damp grayness doesn‘t help. We‘re venturing out soon for a Starbucks run at our neighborhood shopping strip. 🤞🏼it will help.

MaureenMc 🤞 2y
LeahBergen Oh no. 😟 2y

Day 60 #AfterMaria - feeling better after 2 sick days, so I ventured out for some coffee and bookish love at happy place #thebookmarkpr - if you‘ve been keeping track in the news, major power outages this week again in PR, which affected school but not our house (since we haven‘t had power at all). My mother still hasn‘t had power restored since a transformer explosion a week ago (and she lives in Condado, a major tourist area). Sigh.

TrishB 😔😔 sorry to hear. 2y
ScientistSam 😞. Enjoy time at your happy place 2y
Cinfhen Glad you were able to venture out today 📚☕️the power situation is beyond comprehension 2y

Day 56 #AfterMaria and Chili‘s in Dorado, Puerto Rico requires payment only in cash or money order. Yes, money order. Not check, MONEY ORDER. (That‘s because PR consumer protection law requires businesses to have 2 valid methods of payment... way to stick to the letter while killing the spirit of the law, Chili‘s)

DrexEdit 😨😲 2y
Leftcoastzen Instant money order when you know what your order is plus tip ? How does that work? 2y
