Big Power Out

Share

We are supposed to have a big power out between 9:00am – 3:00pm today. This got me up at 5:30 so I could get as much done as I can before it goes out. Aside from work been busy clearing out all our kitchen cupboards as we are in the midst of getting our apartment sprayed for termites and wood beetles – sometimes another factor of living in the Tropics.

Tim told me wood beetles can often come in Mennonite wood. He said you can bring in one piece of wood with this bug and it will eventually infest all wood but bamboo and cedar. They used to buy Mennonite beds in past and the head boards where fine and frame but the cheap slats for mattress (never brought near home) had these little bugs (micro), whamo it infects the insides of drawers first they typically go for non varnish side and eat threw to other side.

Not the best timing for all this as we are trying to get ready for Venice Florida vacation but glad that it is being taken care of and gives me a chance to make the cupboards all nice and clean.  Not seen a termite since Geraldo sprayed inside the walls so I know once today is finished we will be in the clear for sure.

I better run time to finish clearing off kitchen table and refill hummingbird feeders before Geraldo turns up to spray.

Funny thing after yesterday’s Balmy Ambergris Caye Belize Weather post we got scattered showers off an on in the afternoon.

Leaving you with a couple of skydive pics.
