I'm Still Standing ...

I wrote two posts during Katrina and lost them both to power losses. We withstood the hurricane in fine form, despite being confined to the house from Friday afternoon until Sunday morning. Electricity went out several times, sometimes for long periods. We listened to a battery-operated radio periodically to find out what was going on. That was of little value,a s the radio stations here don't do a very good job of reporting live and breaking news. The Emergency Operations Center hotline was a little bit better -- until the battery on the cell phone died.

We're back to normal, more or less. I'm at the Coffee Plantation with Theo and a few of the regulars here. There are no signs of tourism yet.

I have several interesting things to post and will try to do that over the course of the day.
