We are now on day 6 without power, water, or Internet. Obviously, this has been a less than ideal situation.
But it has afforded some wonderful moments and signs of resilience. One happened last night. Some friends invited a few people over, and then a few more. Using just a propane grill, they prepared a delicious dinner, and even better, assembled a great group, including a Scottish couple going home the next day, a South African visitor just arriving, and a couple of New Yorkers thrown in for good measure, to enjoy it.
