    We really are a fortunate Island Nation! We have almost all, back with power; roads are clear; Bus and Ferry service to resume ass normal.

    All that! After a Cat 4-3 hurricane! (Yesterday!)

    Thanks to all that helped. (Very comforting to see the Royal Bermuda Regiment “Boys” out in force clearing the roads, and much more)
