Corona-Crazies!!   World Wide WTF?

I got used to it after a whole month. Irma came first and after ten days, most of the island had power except for our area. When Maria route to PR was predicted, I knew we're going to be in the dark for months (lasting four months). The idiots at the Power Authority were not going to fix what Irma did because they rationalized "why fix it if it's going to break down again?"

The only good thing was at night, watching the sky and its bright Stars.

How did you cook?  How did you keep food fresh?

What did you use for light?

Canned Heat/Cooking fuel.

Ice chest/cooler, mostly milk, no meat. Most of my meals were canned foods (e.g. Vienna sausages). I lost a lot of weight.

Candles (big ones), battery-run lanterns and flashlights.

Well, it's raining outside right now, here. Fortunately, we still have some paper towels left if we need them.

How did people act when supplies came in; like candles, fuel and canned goods.

Was it every man for himself, black marketeers and hoarding, or did people do the right thing?

Surprisingly, we behaved quite civilized.

Glad to hear.

I did my weekly shop today.  Finally managed to find some loo paper, paracetamol and some alcohol wipes for easy hand cleaning when I do my birthday road trip at the end of the month.

I saw a woman loading up her shopping trolley with boxes of tissues and at least a dozen cans of Spam.

That's a sad, sad apocalypse right there.
