We are on a roll . Cooler again by 7 degrees than my sister in Montana, USA.
Not sure how that happens? We are surprised and happy to have the
passing showers. Cistern levels are coming up and we are as green 
as the Emerald 🍀Isle. Passion fruit is busting out all over.
How are your sunsets ?

- No Horizon , No Rain to Clean Up
  • By Jane Higgins <jhigginswear at gmail.com>
  • Date: Sun, 16 May 2021 08:17:14 -0400
Sahara dust has moved in. Yesterday with humidity it felt like 89 degrees f.
We were lucky to gain footage in the cistern after showers in last few
weeks, forecasts show little rain now. We try to imagine how the folks
in St Croix will manage to clean roofs, gutters, cisterns and plumbing 
systems after oil droplets overspray from oil refinery hazardous events
ruined their water collection systems.

If the world would remember  how humans used to collect and conserve 
rainwater and millions still do, more attention may be paid to prevention 
instead of crisis cleanup. How do you clean this up without using up
what water supplies you may have left?  We are so self sabotaging.

It is cool for a May morning. We've had enough rain to keep the pineapples 
on their summer harvest schedule. Sahara dust is being pushed apart
by moisture coming up the island chain.  🍀 Lucky
