February 19th, 2012 – Pavones, Costa Rica
Pavones was with out electricity most of the evening and last night due to a fallen palm tree that fell from my property on to the line! We thought it was a branch that fell at first (which is common here) but then we heard some cracking and smelt smoke. Turns out our yard caught fire and the palm tree was on top of the electrical line on fire as well.
ICE (the electrical company) was called and they showed up in a decent time frame to work on it. But unfortunately they made a huge mess cutting down other trees and branches. Guess who had the privilege of picking up after them, THIS GUY! Thanks ICE!
