I'm hearing the damage is so bad that PR's infrastructure, including electrical grid, has been knocked back 40 to 60 years.  It's going to take a decade to recover under optimal conditions.

It's shocking to think that can happen to part of a first world nation. They are going to need a lot of support from the rest of the US

A black start is hard to perform under perfect conditions, for instance getting the frequency to stabilise in the UK to 50Hz means massive coordination of the various plants and the large load customers that can cause imbalances, it could take days, with zero damage to the grid.

PR is going to have a hard time coordinating that, and any damage to areas may not be detectable until they start trying to bring the grid online.

You might get more out of this specific info than me, but the takeaway is that PR's in a very bad way, and wasn't doing well even before the hurricane hit

Hard to tell if their main generation plants are damaged or not from that, but the logistical cost of importing new power lines and poles and keeping hospitals powered on Diesel 24/7 for the next several months is not a good prospect. It's going to need the full backing of the government to rebuild.

I just realized I washed my sleeping pills down with coffee.

No, I don't know what the fuck is wrong with me.

My boss has lost her nerve.

Fun very over.

It has always been weird but it still looks the same to me as it always has . Maybe that is because I don't go for any of those fancy schmantzy colour schemes that you kids are so fond of.

This in no way implies that the shirtless Dok Howl pics are forthcoming.
Morrissey is the crown prince of sad.  He teaches us that deaf/mute girls are terrible at telling you that a disaster is occurring, and that when you get famous, all your old friends hate you for buying new tee shirts.  Morrissey fans are best known for hugging their legs and biting their knees in the shower, over a girl that dumped them rather than learn their name, or binge-eating an entire pizza and then throwing it up on their man-boobs in the bath tub, while they squeeze their  testicles until they remember that they are worthless and do not deserve love.

Some of the files were being served on https and some not, sorry about that.

We need to renew the SSL again, to keep LMNO out.

He's bringing BIG GAY COWBOYS, he's bringing BEARFORCE1.  And some, I assume, are fabulous people.
