Blackout In Honduras
Honduras had a nationwide blackout the other night. We had just got done with dinner, sister was over at her Spanish tutor's house and suddenly , blackness. From 6:30 - 9:30pm the lights went out all over Honduras. I asked my neighbor why the power went out a few days later. Turns out Honduras gets it's electricity from dams. Well, there was a problem and some repairs were needed. In order to fix the problem they had to shut everything off. Thanks for the notice, Honduras! I suppose if they had given notice it could have given too much time for the criminals to plan something.
We made it through playing cards by candlelight. Candles, by the way, I had bought for hurricane Felix. Glad I had them.
