Lost 129 day streak due to Hurricane Maria.

I'm in Puerto Rico and had a 129 day streak (German). When the hurricane hit, almost all cellphone antennas went down with one lone carrier providing spotty phone (but not data) service for the entire island a week or so after the storm.

There was no conceivable way to salvage my streak. Now I'm debating ditching duolingo since I'm so disheartened. I know it's dumb, and petty. But right now I think I've earned the right to be petty over something not directly related to my immediate survival.

Probably the most demeaning part was the automated messages. Especially that last one where it was all 'since these reminders aren't helping, we're going to stop sending them'.
