Oh Halloween how you come and go! I can’t believe that we are kicking off November tomorrow. Looking at October we will go down as a dry month with deficit probably close to a half an inch. The real numbers won’t come out until tomorrow but I am thinking that it will be end up being an above average month in the way of temps but below in rain.
Just wanted to share a link about the Hurricane that is pounding the Carribean. Although Sept is usually the most active month sometimes we forget they can happen into the winter months. This storm ripped through St. Lucia causing power outages, downed trees and roofs blown off.
He will continue to move through the Caribbean eventually bring effects to Jamaica, Haiti or the Dominican Republic. This could be horrible for Haiti which is still in recovery mode from the Earthquake in January. They issued the second highest storm alert, orange to warn residents. Unfortunately most people are still living in tent cities.
Here is another article talking about what it will mean for the country.
Last year I blogged about the “perfect storm”. Most people have heard of it since the book and movie were made. It was the storm that formed from conditions you would only see in text books. For more info check out my blog post.
