I LOVE MY SOLAR and systems. Our 24/7 Edenorte power has been anything but. I seldom notice when our power is out other then hearing the big generators around.

Sorry for your problems and hope that all goes well. Sometimes it takes a little while to figure out priorities and adjust as many of us have had to.

Good luck.

Lights are still on in the Zona Colonial section of Santo Domingo.
I thought the storm wasn't really expected to hit until tomorrow morning.

Sorry... My doors have always been open for those that need... a hot shower or whatever. :) It has taken years to learn and adjust.

Wife and I where to be on the bus in the AM for medical and stuff but decided that we are better off staying home here on the north coast and being more comfortable.................... and helping others if we can or are needed.

I just heard on the news that it could reach near hurricane strength by the time it reaches the DR by
tomorrow afternoon. Right now it has maximum sustained winds of 65 mph and moving at 26 mph.

Not surprised bronze. I, like others, have been watching this and the forecasts have been rather off? Those of us that have been here awhile kinda know what could happen and the forecasts didn't follow the norms.

We have been prepping all day, we are on the north coast, for the "what if" case and we are ready. Ask A.E. about weather and unexpected and unprepared and overwhelmed. (Sorry A.E. Anyone that has followed knows and you don't need to reply.)

Ive tried man. God knows ive tried. Its all comes down to money. If you have enough to say f u to las Edes and "create" your own power, life is good. Otherwise, you have to live life like a dominican. Living like a dominican isnt happiness for me, its hell on earth.

I know your "miesposo" and family and your a great person here on dr1. You can move into part of our place anytime with full power. (I know that your m-i-l can pay the bills. lol) Best wishes to your hubby ... and you too.

OH... bring ron and a little vodka.

Good luck all.

You don't know how many times that I've ridden my horse way up in the campo and just admired and desired the one room casita with no electric or cable or phone and said.... "I'll live here".

Stocked up on what I need here in the Capital. Family is here staying at a hotel on the Malecon but moved them over to our place today. Rain on and off here today with some heavy rain here and there. Plenty of ron, vino and Presidente. Unfortunately suffering from a sinus infection.
