Not-so Paradise Living

Today the power went out for several hours. Of course, this is not uncommon. We have power outage once every few months or so. In the years before we got here, the power outages were monthly and sometimes weekly. The base has done great things in improving things around. Now, usually a power outage is due to a brown tree snake tyring to make a home in a transformer and the outage is contained to one or two villages.

But apparently today that was not the case.

Lightening strikes was the villain today. And the whole island was without power.

For some reason that strikes fear in me a whole new way.

Oh, and yeah....a tropical storm is headed our way.
