So I just got internet back at my place after two and a half days without. Turns out the phone wires were corroded from moisture and needed to be repaired. The two technicians from Lime were super sweet and stayed nearly a half hour after their shift was over to fix the problem.
But my joy might be short-lived, as I'm likely to spend the next two days without power. We have a tropical storm heading for us that's supposed to hit tomorrow, which may or may not develop into hurricane Isaac before it leaves the islands. I've got my two, big jugs of clean water, some canned soup, beanie weenies and Sterno fuel to warm them up. Time for the critters and I to hole up and wait the storm out.
So far dives have gone well. Had a giant, five foot barracuda scare the ever living daylights out of me this morning when I looked up from collecting data and saw it hovering a foot from my face. Those guys are so creepy. They won't bite, they just follow you, like a big, toothy shadow.
