Hi fellow caribbeans. Hope everyone is doing allright in the rest of the caribbean.
Blessings from down under. Down here its been raining heavily for awhile now.
Its been rumbling since the early morning. Lightning all over the south coast since 03:00. Yesterday we experience a day without sun, no wind, very suffocating. We woke up this morning with overcast skies all over the island. The sun was nowhere to be seen.
- Yesterday was a very dark day in our history with the assasination of the maximum leader Mr Helmin Wiels, a very radical and outspoken leader who declared war head-on against corruption and the maffia. We are mourning his dead this mourning with dark clouds covering the island. May he rest in peace.............
