Anyone else have problems? Ours went out at 2PM. There is nothing I can make out on EDEEste's website. My kid tried calling them but he says they're speaking Chinese.

Massive thunderstorm went thru here a bit after midnight. Probably blew up a transformer. No power since then.

How's the situation? Driving from Samaná tomorrow (still no power in Samaná) and need to pick up someone at airport Sunday. Going to look for air bnb in PC/to Boca Chica area with washer/dryer AND electricity.

Everything is back to normal, well, normal for BC.

But yea, we got electricity yesterday at about 3 pm, so it was off between 13 and 15 hours. Given the other more serious problems, I'm pleasantly surprised they fixed it so fast. We lost again for 30 minutes last night, but since then, it's been perfect.

No luz for 23 hours and counting. EDEestupido blew another transformer. I truly loathe this company.

Here and there
Update from ZC. Boca Chica borrowed about 4 hours worth of power from Juan Dolio this AM. Power off at noon and still off. I’m staying here in ZC for awhile.
Perhaps a dumb question, but why stay in BC? There are far better places, and some not too far either.

If I were to do a pros and cons comparison I could not come up with too many reasons to live there, although I confess I don't know yours, yet.

My Haitian kid’s older brother lives here. So we stay. It’s very important to him.

3 hours no luz and counting. I don't think EDEestupido can get any worse.

Be glad you don’t live near me. Every day is 6 hours on, 6 hours off, 6 on, 6 off.
It's the frustration of not knowing how long or why. I guess it's part of the culture because the locals don't seem to mind too much. I did however, here a report a year or so ago of one of the EDE contractor's trucks being set on fire in Andres after no luz there for 48 hours.

In my case, with EdeSur, I can go online and enter my contract # from our bill and it tells you scheduled hours. Usually fairly accurate.
