Culebra received only 0.4 inches of rain for the month of June. This is our second lowest on our records. In spite of minimal moisture, the trees and flowers continue to bloom with vivid color. A welcome site against the brown grasses.

Good Morning,

Culebra has finally gotten some rain from the wave passing through the islands.  A short, but heavy rain of about 2/10ths of an inch early this morning.  We see more on the radar and are hopeful for more for our little island.  Yesterday we flew over to PR and I got these aerial viewsout small village and bay area.  Also, on the approach for landing at the old Roosevelt Roads base, you can see the wind farm in the distance.

Enjoy, and more rain please,  William

Good Morning,  Culebra's rainfall for the month of May was 2.80 inches.  This is well below our average for this month.



We hope all islanders are prepared for hurricane season, with provisions and supplies.  Time to check battery supplies, and test run that generator if you have one.

I have attached a couple of Frangi Pani photos from our yard.  They bloomed well this year,  Enjoy,  William

Good Morning,

Culebra received 4.4 inches of rain in April, which did great things for our grasses and flowers.  The island is at it's springtime best.




For those of you who have this tradition for the beginning of a month:

Rabbit, Rabbit!



Enjoy the merry month of May,  William

Good Morning,  I attach a photo of our rain gauge showing 2.5 inches of rain in the past two days.  That is more rain than in the past two months.

You will also note the green starting to show in the grass.  A wonderful rain, that mostly had time to soak in. Thank You to all the rain dancers.

Today dawns clear and sunny, looks to be a nice weekend.

Happy April islanders, perhaps some April showers?  Let's hope.

As the chart indicates, Culebra received only 0.9 inches of rain in March.  A very dry start to the year with only 3.1 inches.

With beautiful sunrises and schooners anchored in the bay we will not complain too much.
