Good morning and a HAPPY AND BLESSED TUESDAY.   Very quiet and still dry.  A few days of big concern with LEE looming on our door steps. Do hope everywhere can be spared.  What a blessing for  ALL    the NORTHERN LEEWARD ISLANDS.  No planes in or out for 2 days. Tomorrow   one   medical flight.    Friday flights should be back to normal.  Nice fresh south westerly winds for a few days. Better than the heat.  Today wind is at 15 knots from the South.   Soon to come back from the North East and then East.September slipping away.October a nd November eyes will turn to the West/ The Central Caribbean sea.  Hope no surprises from  that end. I am sure we can all remember.   Klaus and  the big one,  LENNY.    Keep well ,  safe and have a great week.

Not a cloud..  Very very clear sky and no wind. Inside the house its recording 90. degrees F.    In the back yard directly in the sun I  recorded 120 F. Earlier in the morning it was over cast and cool.  What a difference this afternoon at 3 p.m. Its really severe out there.  Hope soon  we can hear the rain drops falling. Its needed.  Keep safe. Low 40,s.   No where needs this  kind of heat.   

- not too much rain on Saba.

This past weekend we got one inch of rain.  In the past weeks  some brief showers that did not last long. Have been experiencing many very clear hot days with a constant 90 degrees F.   We are still dry and need water for the cisterns. Looking ahead  quite a number of days coming up with  a very flat ocean .Mostly overcast and cooler days predicted.  One good thing due to our height above sea level we cool down fairly well at night.  So far in our neck of the woods its been very quiet. Wonder how much longer it will continue.?  Keep well and stay safe.
