- Irma - Getting to Cayman

So many years without a post - that was really nice! 

I have a twist to the Cayman story - I am in the Turks & Caicos Islands and trying to make it back to Cayman before the storm, which thankfully if out of the "danger zone"/ 

In the TCI, all is still calm but getting out of the way of Irma is a challenge.   AA flights to Miami seem all booked.  So I snagged a seat on the local airline to Kingston Jamaica Wednesday afternoon.  Hopefully the flight will leave -storm should only start to be  felt in the TCI Thursday. 

For the full story and a bunch of pictures of the current situation in the TCI, please see my last blog post at the link below.

Good afternoon everyone! Sending thoughts and prayers out to all those in Hurricane Irma's path. Our prayers go especially to those in imminent danger in the Leeward Islands and the Virgin Islands. God bless you all and keep you safe through this. Blessings Alicia E. Dixon(Jen)

It has been a while since my last post. This rainy season has been a good one. 
As I type, the lighting is flashing and the thunder is seriously loud. Looking 
at the local radar, it looks as though most of Grand Cayman is experiencing the 
rain, to some degree. 

Here in the interior it is coming down in buckets. Started around 5:45am and 
hasn't eased up.

Good afternoon everyone

Today has brought some heavy showers with  periods of sun and even occasional glimpses of blue skies in between clouds. 

Roads are in good condition when i was out during the last 2 hours. No signs of flooding between George Town in to West Bay. Rains have not been for prolonged periods.

Kind regards Alicia (Jen) Dixon

Good afternoon everyonè

Bit of rainy weather moving through our area over the weekend. See attached from our local weather service. The area of low pressure in the South Western Caribbean is interacting with an upper level trough. We are expecting some heavy showers through the weekend. Today there has been periods of heavy down pours with intermittent light drizzles. I have attached a few photos. Calms seas and overcast skies.

Kind regards, Jen Dixon

It's turning out to be another hot day here. A slight breeze, but not enough to 
make my yard work any easier. 

The usual buildup is occurring.....developing over the interior and sailing 
west. I'm sure folks in Savannah down to George Town, and possibly West Bay 
road, will be getting some rain in a bit.

Good Day to All!

It looks as thought the dry spell has been broken, as we have been experiencing 
intermittent showers over the past week or so. 

The grass is vibrant green, and the mosquitoes have arrived. Walking my dogs 
has now become "running my dogs". 

Over the past few days, there has been some heavy showers by me. Usually at 
night or in the early morning. 

On the way to town, there was another large cell moving in from the south east.

Another cool morning. Doesn't look like there will be any rain for the next few 
days.

What a difference a few hours can make! Especially with the temperature. 
In the mornings, it is cool, and by afternoon you are sweating. The heat seems 
a bit much for this time of year. 

This morning, around 6:30, it was nice and cool, not that uncommon for us here 
in the interior of the island this time of year. Takes the right conditions 
though...no wind, no cloud cover etc...

This afternoon, the sun is blazing hot. Hot enough for us to have some 
heating-of-the-day rain.
