Seems like the perfect time for my cisterns pressure tank to develop a bad leak... anyone know when Home Depot is opening?

It didn't seem to be open monday.

They make plumbers epoxy putty. Might seal the leak in the short term. If you can find some, that is.

Home Depot can only be open 4 hrs a day (Noon- 4pm) since the daily curfew is being enforced.

Gallows Bay Hardware has no roof over the second floor. They may be delayed in re-opening.

Question: I thought Home Depot building sustained significant damage. But, maybe that not true? Is Home Depot open for business? (Acknowledge curfew restrictions apply)

I've just read online the following excerpt from VI Daily News 4 days ago:
"There's no estimate for when the Home Depot store on St. Thomas might reopen. Corporate spokesman Stephen Holmes said Friday that recent rumors the store had reopened are untrue, and repair work needs to be done before the store will be ready for customers."

LF was asking about HD on STX. Aerial pictures of HD STX don't appear to show any major damage, the roof looks to be all in tact.

HD is not in Gallows Bay, it's down the road from Sunny Isle. Gallows Bay Hardware, no roof.

Interesting. Looks like most of the main HD roof is covered with solar panels except for where there's HVAC or skylights in the flyover pictures.

but if the solar is set up with net metering, (and as I recall that is how it was set up), it does not operate when wapa is not working

Yep..

And they haven't been open the last two times I stopped there, found one at gallows bay in the warehouse though... picking that up tomorrow.

good thing I don't need sleep, night shifts + mid day lifted curfew rock!

Home Depot cannot operate without internet service. Once they have reliable internet, they will open.
