Wow. French are doing a great job if this is to be believed.
Excellent.
But it seems St Martin will get power before Sint Maarten. And that will be bad...........they need to build a power plant! Those old crappy generators can't do the job.....
Ridiculous.

They weren't even really dependable when we were there the first time in 1973. There were a couple of nights we lost power at Mullet Bay and I remember an evening in the 80s when the power went out. We had probably one of our nicest island meals out on the point at Sonesta, and we dined by candlelight out of necessity. Candles, wine......the whole magilla and NO KIDS !! <img src="http://www.traveltalkonline.com/forums/images/graemlins/handshake.gif" alt="" /> <img src="http://www.traveltalkonline.com/forums/images/graemlins/handshake.gif" alt="" />

Ha!
I remember having a cocktail party at SBYC back in 2002 or 2004 and having all these people over and the power going out.
Had to sit outside with candles and oil lanterns. But it didn't help the food inside! Yuck!
Ms B was there. We shared a chair and I fell off.
LOL

I remember being in New York and hearing the Gebe electric power was out for 5 days in my area. It was not a storm just some other reason? Anyway I called someone to go in the villa and check the refrigerator. I had it stocked with food for our return. Cost u Less raw chicken, raw meats etc. I can't believe I did not throw away the refrig but had someone clean it out for me. Maggots! <img src="http://www.traveltalkonline.com/forums/images/graemlins/Sick.gif" alt="" />
