Remember when I told you about Hurricane Igor? How the storm ripped through the island leaving thousands of customers without power, some for about 20 hours (ahem) and some for more than a week? Well, we're officially still feeling the storm surge since BELCO—Bermuda's electric company—has been fixing downed lines islandwide long after the storm's departure. Case in point: This report from Bernews, which says they'll be no power in the Church Road area of Southampton on Saturday including St. Anne's Church, Turtle Bay Lane, Welcome Place, Port Royal Lane, Admiral Lane and the related portion of South Road. Which also means that yours truly will again be without power all day on Saturday. Southampton residents, fill up the coolers and get out the generators—and make sure to drink all the beer before it gets warm.
