Maria log, Day 54, November 15, Wednesday
Travel around the area has become a cha-cha--one step forward, two steps back, slide to the side, repeat.
FEMA-funded (we think) crews are everywhere picking up debris of the sides of roads. Electric crews are starting to show up as well When the crews are out, roads are blocked, sometimes completely, sometimes for hours. Sometimes there are ways around the block, sometimes not.
We usually don't find out a road is blocked until we get to the actual work site, to the actual block.
Back up. Turn around. Look for another route to wherever it is you're trying to go. Often as not, that route is blocked as well. Back up. Turn around. Look for another route.
On the one hand it's frustrating and time consuming trying to get anywhere. On the other hand, "you must learn patience, Grasshopper." These are signs something is happening, that something is getting done.
