On STT it was Sugar Estate, I think. Wondering which on St Croix and how long it took.

Thanks!

Wow, I think JFK and condo row might have gotten power first and downtown due to the underground lines

Thanks! If I ever move to St Croix, I'll look for something in Christiansted, I think. I liked the west end better before Maria.

Hospital and downtown C'sted served by underground feeder were the first as they did not need much work. Then JFK, Condo Row and 5 corners due to proximity to power plant, no underground lines for them, they were the first to get new poles. Folllowed by NorthSide Rd to Gas City. And then Mapp's mother's house so she could cook her turkey. Something like that. We got power in La Grande Princess day before Thanksgiving. For complete details see the thread WAPA progress on STX.
