Certainly not the rain maker we were all hoping for but perhaps from one more “blob” still out to our east.  Winds NE avg. 15-20, gust of 42 mph around 8:30 but mostly gusting 26-32 mph.  Only 0.21 in. of rain.  Bar falling since 10:30 – now 1006.2 mb (storm is 1005 mb) so pretty close.

Looks like any chance of rain has passed us by. Currently due south of us.  Had 0.01 in. rain late last night, none since.  Gusty winds ENE maybe 10 – 15 mph, gust of 29 mph around 8:00.  Bar was 1007.8 mb earlier, now rising at 1008.2 (storm is 1005 mb).  No rain is disappointing.

Can’t even see Scrub Island and no horizon for 2 days. Never seen it so bad.
Stay safe everyone and maybe wear a mask, not just for Corona.
Best to all,

- May Rainfall

Good Morning All,
We begin again, First of June 2020. I wish a safe and gentle trip through both the Corona Virus and coming hurricane season to everyone.
We have had 1 inch of rain here in Anguilla on The Searocks in the last month, this has been mainly due to a mega thunder and lightening storm the night of 27th May, which also dropped .82 of an inch. Very welcome. The island is still extremely hot, has been in the early 90's a couple of times in the last few weeks and diving the other day the ocean temp was 84F at 70ft on the north Atlantic side, unusual for this time of year in Anguilla, more like August/September weather.
There have been more sightings of whales this year, especially around Sombrero. and I have seen them in the distance, while self isolating,  from the porch, breaching and blowing as they go by. They were a lot more liberated than I. 
My thanks again to Gert and Dave for all their hard work and information.

Still no rain on the horizon , though I did notice a white powder puff blob 
coming off the African coast ?? I attach also a pic of the Neem tree in full 
bloom, a wonderful scent coming from it as well , almost like jasmine. A safe 
and good evening to all.  JH  Searocks

- April non-rain in Anguilla

A late afternoon to you all,
I hope all are safe and well during this extraordinary and tragic time.
We have had .21 of an inch of rain on the Searocks during April, it is dry dry 
dry. The golden lining of this is no clouds in the sky and stunning sunsets 
almost every evening (see pic).
At present we are corona free, our 3 cases have recovered. So some on island 
activities have been relaxed (can now play friendly tennis and 4 people can 
have dinner on the gallery, self distancing). However, we are still on very 
strict border controls, no planes, no boats except for licensed fishermen on 
the north side, and planes and patrol boats monitoring our coast line every 5 
hours or so. Nobody in or out. I am very impressed with the Anguilla Government.
I was fascinated by the ‘no shadow ‘ from my fellow correspondents but of 
course missed it by about 15 minutes here in Anguilla. Murphy’s law!! I did, 
however, see the Southern Cross the other evening low on the horizon east of 
St. Martin, a very inspiring sight (please correct me if I am wrong anyone).
I wish everyone a great evening and keep washing and washing your hands.
Stay safe,
JH

Hello to all, and hope you are safe and well. Still on lock down in Anguilla and probably for the foreseeable future. We have 3 cases here.
The rainfall on the Searocks for March was 2.80 inches, but none for the last week and things are starting to dry up quite quickly. Current temp is 80F inside and very little breeze.
Stay safe and take care,
JH
