- JUNE 1 THAT TIME OF YEAR AGAIN!

WELL  HERE  WE  GO AGAIN..   ANOTHER   HURRICANE  SEASON OFFICIALLY STARTING..  BUT  THIS YEARS forecast  SOUNDS  POSITIVE   WITH THE FORECAST..  of  course  it only takes  ONE   so  we  have to remember that..  and the key  as  those of us  who are  seasoned hurricane survivors  is TO BE  PREPARED   ( that  was  also the  girl scout code and  I was  one in my youth!!)  

Just  to say a  big  thank you  and    hats off to GERT  for his  continued  efforts  to keep STORM CARIB  GOING..  It has  served such an important role for so many  "in harms way"  being  able to   "connect"  so    a  big  THANK YOU TO GERT    and  I hope you wont be hearing for me  very often as  that  means  THERE IS  BAD  WEATHER  HERE on our  special "rock".  

 and  THE  REASON I KEEP DOING THIS  is  reminded  in   this  text  after we  were  seriously  hit by Hurricane  GEORGE in   1998-  scroll down to my  post from  SEP 24th 1998.  I  often get  emails  from  those  who appreciate  the posts!     Thanks  and keep them coming!
