The US Virgin Islands continue under a
tropical storm warning (that was not really expected by most people, given the
southerly track of the storm).
With coastal forecasts for gusts up to 55 knots, we
thought it was a good idea to take the screens down off the porch -- just
in case, and do storm-related prep work while we can. We've secured lightweight plants, tables, etc. Don't
know how seriously others are taking this but, we figure we'll just have to do
it at some point this storm season, so what the heck!
It is very hazy and pretty warm -- 89 F; 65%
humidity. We did get a decent wind gust earlier, and we are starting to
get a bit of a breeze, but nothing that would indicate a storm. The wind must be
mixing it up a bit, direction-wise; boats in Coral Bay are facing in several
directions. Hard to tell what will reach us here.
I do pray the islands that got the first visit from
Dean have faired okay.
