The Sun and the Calm Return!

The past few weeks have been very hard on Roatan’s tourist industry. With the “riots” and roadblocks news reaching us in the north, things seem much worse than they were before, but in fact the situation is better. The power is on, but patchy in some areas, and the roads are clear. A friend told me that while in a cab to French harbor they had no trouble getting through a roadblock in front of the RECO plant.

The bad weather that had covered the area lifted this week and once again the island is a glistening gem. The good weather I hope will stay with us for a good while, five weeks of solid rain AND the whole RECO business is enough to drive someone mad!

Going to school to be green

I have decided to go back to school! At 43 that’s a big deal! But I’m going to go to Seneca College to learn how to be a PV installer! I’ve been solar powered since 1988, and there have been many times that my eagerness to have light overrode my fear of flaming tongues of electrical fire!I start on the tenth of May and I am very excited, this will be the perfect compliment to the online solar store to come, and I’ll be able to set up these systems fast and efficiently. Not to mention that I’ll be able to pull the numbers out of my head that make sales final!So I’ll try to keep up here as often as I can, and I’m looking forward to spending the summer (and fall, winter, spring, summer and fall!) surrounded by books. I changed out of the Grip category at IATSE into the Drivers for the next six months so I hope to get a bit of work and get a bit of school work done as well!¬†I’ll try to keep you regularly posted!¬†Willhttp://www .evergreenroatan.com
