January WAPA bills should be lower

Friday, January 23rd, 2015

The Virgin Islands Water and Power Authority has reset rates for the first six months of 2015 to 39.1 cents per kilowatt hour, down from 48.6 cents.

The decrease is thanks to the worldwide drop in fuel costs, and WAPA’s forecast for savings from its switch to propane starting this year.

“We are pleased to pass along these initial cost savings to our customers, and look forward to further rate decreases as our propane conversion project becomes fully implemented,” said WAPA executive director Hugo Hodge, Jr. in a statement.

You can read WAPA’s announcement here.

And watch an animation of its propane conversion project with partner Vitol below…

St. John’s worst speed bump

Friday, January 9th, 2015

Most of the speed bumps between town and the Westin are tolerable. They’re plentiful, but tolerable.

Not this one. The speed bump by the basketball court is on an angle, so it bumps you four times, not just twice, first left, then right, then left and right again.

It really doesn’t matter how slow you take it. Hold onto your drink…

Put some new shoes on…

I sang Paolo Nutini from the dumpster to town when I saw this fantastic find.

Unfortunately, they weren’t my size. (But that song always puts me in a good mood.)
