Up to 8 inches of rain coming. Very windy here overnight. Clouds are racing SW 
to NE. 
PAY ATTENTION. 9 years ago on February 14 we had a huge rain event, 12 inches 
of rain in 24 hours. It knocked out our weather head and monument that held all 
of our power lines into our house. We went off grid that day and have never 
been re-connected to our local power company. It took  allot  of work and  
money invested in our solar inverter system and we have saved many thousands of 
dollars on electricity.

I do believe Irma was a category 6 on the Northside of St Thomas 

The hypothetical new label could go to any tropical cyclone with sustained 
winds of at least 192 mph — an intensity that five storms have surpassed since 
2013, the scientists said.

- SUNSHINE and What Months Have We Had Hurricanes ?
  • By Jane Higgins <jhigginswear at gmail.com>
  • Date: Thu, 2 Nov 2023 07:38:20 -0400
Our solar system LOVES sunshine allot more than the generator.
We are so happy to dry the clothes on the line outside.

Like Isabel I too have heard stories of Hurricanes in almost every month
of the year over the centuries of weather record keeping. Can we find the 
facts ?

Was the December hurricane called Karl?What other months besides our
normal July-November storms have we had named storms in the Virgin Islands? 

Maybe a question for the Historical Trust? 


- Looking for Sunshine
  • By Jane Higgins <jhigginswear at gmail.com>
  • Date: Mon, 30 Oct 2023 07:30:06 -0400
The slow moving blob from South to North is right over us. Rain has been off
and on with enough time between intervals to soak in. We are looking like 
Ireland.
This is a challenge for us off the grid. We will take it. Better than a 
hurricane any day.
Check your local radar before driving. We are under rip tide and flood warnings.
We will see some sunshine on Wednesday hopefully.

Storms coming over in the night always seem worse. Please let us know what you 
are experiencing. That tail

the worst will blow off East. 

Patience is a virtue and we are virtuous people here in the Caribbean. We are

not be able to do the final preparations for Tammy. We have been ready .
 Fill the car with gas. Check the cash drawer. Pantry is full. 
Shutters up, Decks cleared. 

The aviator is preparing for a SLOW MOVING Cat 1 .
By sundown tonight,
the planes that can fly away will . The hangars will be packed
in with copter, planes and boats. Charters have been cancelled. TS winds
can flip a plane and sink a boat. So…..be ready. 

Remember Dorian, remember storms forming over us. The SLOWDOWN 
to 6 mph forward movement is the RED FLAG. Remember the October
rains that have sunk us in the past. 

See below, sandbags available. Being ready is the key to calm.

- About Last Night and Morning At Last
  • By Jane Higgins <jhigginswear at gmail.com>
  • Date: Wed, 4 Oct 2023 06:46:52 -0400
The lightning started around 7 pm last night and is still with us. Raining off 
and on all night. Car wash swaths, some wind; the palms have been swaying. The 
light show was so in intense from 9 pm til about 1:15 am that it felt like 
something big was right over us.
A few outrageous cracks made the house shake. Can’t imagine being on a boat 
last night.
We are waking up to that whispering wind sound and plenty of rain right now.
The dogs imagined someone in the courtyard around 1am and went berserk.
Heard a dog that must have been left outside crying. What human does that ? 
The tree frogs and night critters were able to sing by  3am .

This radar map is now. Looks like Phillipe is still confused and now going more 
West over Puerto Rico and North to open sea. He is slow but moving. I just 
heard a big truck with  horns blaring like a train in the distance. What? Don’t 
be crazy. Stay home.
This is going to go on for hours. It is the coolest it has been since April.
Daylight always brings less anxiety. The hours of powerful lightning reminded 
us who is in charge. Stay safe. Let us know how your night went Culebra and 
Vieques? We are AH WE .

I have yoga sisters reporting from different sides of our island.High up on top 
of center of island “ socked in “. East End starting to rain. High up on South 
side wet and rainy,
right above airport and can’t see it. NW side breezy then still. NW view of 
Atlantic shows seas moving more West, choppy. SW west End beach level, quiet.
We hope our friends in Anguilla are ok. Breeze picking up now at 650 ft. 
Tallest trees around us are swaying . So green and vibrant now from days of 
passing showers. The breeze feels great. 
If crosswinds go above 16 mph the airport may be on alert. Will follow up with 
aviator. 
Moving at 8 mph. Phillipe needs to  skeedadle. His lightening personality left 
a trail of destruction .Please let us know how you are doing on your island.

Fedaw in Dominica,
Thank you, please keep updating us.
Martha in Antiqua,
How are the seas? 
We have had enough soaking rain over last few days that
I moved orchids in pots into house so they don’t rot.
Here on NW side of St Thomas we are expecting Tuesday and Wednesday 
to be rainy. 

Islanders, let us know what your observations are.
Thank you,
Jane in St Thomas

We had almost 3 inches of rain overnight. Clearing now. Watching clouds race 
due West. Hearing thunder to the WSW. Waiting for that turn north. A sloppy 
rainstorm.
Still under heat advisory today but we can feel that the temperature has 
dropped.
Enjoying the coolness. Looking for some solar gain today. Hoping for full 
cisterns and
light wind.
Let us know how it is going on your island. Might be time to get the cribbage 
board out.

The National Hurricane Center said that the Virgin Islands and Puerto Rico 
should monitor the progress of Philippe as another storm, Rina, formed east of 
it.

This is my yoga beach, called Brewers Beach on the south side of St Thomas on
September 5 , 2017; one day before Hurricane Irma. We are not completely healed 
and never will be. We still have families living in marginal houses. We see the 
bare tops of trees , wrecked buildings, morphed landscapes. Irma changed our 
psyche. Irma 
brought flashbacks of Hugo and Marilyn. Little did we know that Maria was on
her way. Anxiety imprints us. We are stronger and better prepared. Sahara dust
is back to hopefully get us thru a safer September. Preparation equals 
confidence.
How is your island’s recovery since Irma?

Franklin is confused, slow lumbering, dipping here and there. He just needs to

soaking into our drought stricken terrain. We are grateful for the rain. Not a 
great day
for off grid living but our buddy Gen is taking care of boosting the battery 
bank.
We are so anxious for our friends in Aruba and Hispaniola. 

Franklin..come on…just move will you please? And Gert ? What is your plan ? 
You look timid but we have had storms from over our heads.

I’m out to re-dig the drainage hole that drains the courtyard.
You can never be completely ready for heavy rain, but you can try.

We APPRECIATE the 75 F degree morning….almost cold.
We worry for our friends and farmers in my home state of Nebraska that
felt the  heat index of 122F yesterday , yes 122F . The crops and cattle are 
dropping.
This is catastrophic for the breadbasket of USA. 

Pace yourself, fill that pantry. Are your propane tanks full? 
Does rainwater have a clear path around your house? Does your neighbor need
some help?

Now is a good time to donate to StormCarib so we can keep the conversations

Not sure if you can see it in this picture. We are 650 ft above the Atlantic on 
 Northwest side of St Thomas. Not sure where all this Sargassum will land. 
Cooler today by 10 degrees. Tiny passing sprinkles. The flat sea usually 
indicates something is coming or taking the energy off the top of the ocean. 
Looks like you could ice skate to Miami.

The starfruit are tiny little footballs falling off the trees. 
Not sure how the trees survive no rain for weeks?  The genips bloomed and the 
blossoms fell off…just like last year. 
The bushman, landscaper and weed eater are all on break.
