Omar V – Aftermath

Sorry to have been out of the loop, but we've been out of the loop. This is just a note to tell you all is well. The hurricane was – well, kind of exciting. (I know, Hugo was MUCH worse. Everyone we've talked to since Wednesday made sure we understand this.)

So the power went out at 8:25 p.m. and the storm reached its height a little after midnight. I'll have more to say about it later.

The power did not come back on here until about an hour or so ago. So for three days we've been dealing with no electricity, which means also no running water. And no Internet access. So no updating.

We also taped a couple of short hurricane reports for youtube that are still on teh camera since ... like I said, no Internet. We'll get them up tomorrow, though they are a lot less timely now.

Anyway, just wanted to report in. We're all alive and well, if tired and a little skanky. (I'm last in line for he shower, which is odd because I think I'm skankiest.

Until tomorrow. Right now, it's my turn for the shower.

Glad you came out of it just fine!

Figured the lack of power had to do with not hearing any updates. I'm happy to hear that it wasn't as bad as it could have been for everyone. Enjoy your shower!

Glad you are OK! Now you know what an eyewall feels like. I hear the snorkeling will be a little bit less pristine; just stick with the shower.

Greetings,
Hinrich
