We lost power at 12:03 am. I know because I was still awake when suddenly the television, lights and fans went off. My daughter came in because she didn’t like being the only one downstairs in the dark.
We all chatted for a bit. I was able to get to sleep about 3 am. So, four hours of sleep later I was done. It was thankfully 45 degrees outside so it was chilly but not mind numbing cold.
Power was just restored about 4:30 pm. A large tree had taken down power lines and poles. It knocked out power to 2500 homes.
Although this was an inconvenience I cannot imagine being one of the people going on 6 weeks with no power in Puerto Rico. My laundry in the washing machine will need to be rerun, my freezer cleaned up and we can go put to eat. But not to be able to even communicate with others and not know the time? No laundry, no cooking, no refrigeration. I cannot even fathom.
