 For  those  of  us in the islands   we  are  always  tuned in to  HURRICANE  SEASON and  although  it is  still  several months  away  from  OFFICIAL  START  we  are   watching  the   forecasts..   Here  is  one  from our  Antigua MET  OFFICE   …  should have us  all  doing things NOW.   as  i  have been.. I learned that putting  CROSS BEAMS  across your roof  greatly  protects  it from being  “GONE WITH THE WIND”  so have  now  ties  all  8  of  my roofs like this…. photos to show  

FORECAST FOR  2018 

ROOF  BEFORE  CROSS  TIES

Dear Fellow Islanders,

According to Colorado State University the 2018 hurricane season is expected to be more active than usual. Current predictions are 14 named tropical storms, 7 hurricanes, and 3 major hurricanes. That being said, it's never to early to start planning and preparing for the season ahead. 


Regards,
Daniella Seepaul
