There seems to be a "bump" about 14 or 15 degrees
North to the east.
Berry of St. T has made an excellent observation.
I also pray that a "Hugo" doesn't pass by for a visit.
We speak of the experiences of big
hurricanes with great glee at the local bar. But I remember the days after a
hurricane were a terrible time.... No water.... No Electric... No phone..
No TV...No ice for drinks... and foodstuffs were severely
limited. Washing up out of a rain barrow and flushing with a bucket of sea
water is great bar talk. But It wasn't fun after the first few days.
We couldn't even get to an airport to retreat to some place else.
We lived here and were bound to stay and clean up. And even good rice
gets old after 20 days.
And if it does stop
raining after the storm.... Then you don't have any water in the rain
barrow and the cistern is shared with those that have no cistern.
How many hurricanes have the
readers of this board been through. I think it would be interesting
to see the posts.
I personally remember
"David" and I have a fleeting memory of a small one before that. David was a
government lie. NOAA said seas "three to five". David took out the pier in
Esperanza, Vieques. And some an idiot in a "big power boat " took out four other
boats tied to the pier, all by himself, by running across their stern lines.
I prefer to reminisce about
ancient hurricanes than to have a new experience.
