- Anguilla on the grape vine

Good Evening to you all,
It is a while since I have posted due to the fact I am 5000 miles away from Anguilla. I don’t have substantiated information but I understand there was enough wind and rain to cancel the air and sea ports yesterday, plenty of squalling showers over the last couple of days, but no injuries or disasters that I know of, I do however have verified information that the water temp  is 83F plenty warm enough to generate incentive to potential hurricanes. So please stay prepared.
On a completely different note, a few of you will know I lost with great sadness the little brown dog last autumn. I have now been finally brave enough to honour her by taking care of another small brown dog, please see pics, her name is Lili but is better known as ‘the devil in disguise’. She is 11 weeks old, full of character and I may say not all of it good. I am busy trying to train her to be able to deal with Eurostar, Air France and GBexpress ferries which she will have to deal with in a couple of months when I will return to Anguilla. Please wish me luck!
I wish you all a very good evening and hurricane free next couple of months.

- Rain, Lightning and Thunder

For the first time in months Anguilla is raining.  So far the rain is light with some gusty winds from time to time.
We are seeing lighting and hearing thunder which many here have not heard in months.  

Everyone is hoping for just enough rain across Anguilla.  We really need it here.

Good Evening to all readers of Stormcarib,
My kind neighbour  on the Searocks has been reading my rain gauge and we have had 3.85 inches since the beginning of May, very welcome to the cistern, pool and plants. I attach a pic of my Yucca in full bloom saying ‘wonderful rain’ I hope my Locus Tree has survived, there are no Locus trees in Anguilla and I found the seed of this one on Shoal Bay East (it looked like a brown leather purse) and amazingly it has grown. It has however been very hot and humid lately around 90F, I wonder what the sea temperature is?
I wish everyone a great weekend.
Kind regards,
