Electrical outage and frustration...

I will always love and appreciate DuoLingo and its approach to helping me with my Italian. To me, DuoLingo is a wonderful example of the generosity that was the Internet's original intent. SO, I am not whining in this, my first epistle to DuoLingo. But I was very dismayed last night when the electricity in my neighborhood---and a lot of upstate NY---went out, when I was on my way to take a lesson or two. Yesterday was to have been Day 178 of a long streak of daily practice. Imagine my disappointment. By the time the power came back on, it was very early the next day. Che orrore! Anyhow, I have gotten back to my Italian lessons today, starting back at day one, with gratitude for not only your wonderful learning platform, but for Electricity!

That is why it is always useful to have a streak freeze.

As the other user said. Always have a streak freeze equipped just in case.
