Non-electric Friday

We got word through the grapevine (from a friend's cleaning gal, to that friend, to another gringa, to me) that the electricity is going to be shut off on Friday, and that this may be a regular weekly event in Western Honduras.

I never know whether or not such rumors will turn out to be true, but they often are, so I've decided to prepare for that possibility. A while back, Blogger set things up so that we bloggers can write a post, and set the date and time in the future, so that the writing will appear on the blog automatically. I've been meaning to try this, but I am rarely far enough ahead in my blogging to do so.

This is the day! If you are reading this on Friday, that means that the dating/timing system worked, and also that our electricity is indeed off for the day.

Update: It is now 10:30am on Friday, and the power is still on. I'll just go ahead and let this automatic post go through, though, just so we can all enjoy the thrilling experience! ;-D

Isn't it a cool feature? I've used it several times for my blog - but I've never told anyone :)

As the originators of said rumor all I can say is that I've never been so disappointed to have electricity.

Yeah originators!!!

I'm happy it stayed on too...maybe if we expect no power Fridays we'll always have power on Fridays.

What do you think???? :)

And now I'm off to figure out the posting in the future thing...
