Delta on Canary Islands Blogs

Victor Ruiz in south east Gran Canaria has created a roundup of coverage of Tropical Storm Delta at his blog Linotipo from among various Canarian blogs.

English speakers will require the assistance of something like Google Language Tools to read the rest of the Spanish language lineup, however, it is interesting to read the different perspectives and experiences - and great dry humour comments like "today, the Canaries work off batteries" - from various points around the islands, not just those related to Delta, but as a view on island life in general.

Many posts also have photos and they don't need translating!

Canary Islands newspaper, Canarias7, said on their blog Atarecos that they felt the effects of Delta on their servers, showing them how little we were all prepared for such an event. An unprecedented 24,000 visitors and their Java virtual machine decided it was not disposed to serve that many requests at once.

I have to say that I am honoured to the point of extreme humbleness that Secret Tenerife has been included, let alone listed first, as the only English language blog amongst the Canarian blogosphere. WOW! Does this mean I have "arrived"? :)
