Twenty Second


Here’s a fun one for you. Last night, my home lost power for much of the day. That meant we had to escape and go live in a hotel for the night. No power in a fully electric home means no light (Obviously), no drinking water (fridge water tap won’t work), no way to cook or heat anything (stupid electric cooking range), no way to bathe the child in comfort (kids do NOT like the dark), no way to monitor the child when sleeping (no baby monitor).

Luckily we had the privilege of heading to a hotel and we did. It wasn’t comfortable and we packed for it way too quickly. Still got the essentials but also got stuck with a massive bill for one night of stay. What a way to bring in the horrid Daylight Savings BS this country makes everyone suffer through.

So what has this got to do with publushing daily? I definitely missed posting last night. Well, see… this blog is actually hosted in my home on a tiny server that sits in a corner and barely makes any noise. During the blackout, that server was down too. So though I did write my blog post for last night, I couldn’t publish it. I’m doing that now. What follows is my post as written last night. Cheers.


Such a strange thing to happen. A large part of the island lost power, affecting about 3000 folks. Since they didn't have a good estimate of when the power will come back, we decided to come stay the night at a hotel.

The power came back around 8 pm but with no confirmation that this was it. Either way, we were settled in and there's no reason to waste the money we've already spent on booking the hotel room. So we're here while our home awaits us.

All of our systems are down, including my blog, Plex etc. So while I'm writing this post today, it'll get posted tomorrow.

C'est la vie.
