Hurricane IGOR is getting too big for his britches!

Hurricane IGOR is now a Category 4 hurricane with winds of 135 MPH and he's still 1200-ish miles away (thank goodness!)

BUT... the 2:30pm forecast puts the center at our latitude of 17.7 N and he's still flying west.  The 8:00pm forecast in a few hours from now predicts the center will be at 17.8N and 47.5W which is a tad higher, but not ENOUGH.

"They" seem to be confident that Igor will turn more northerly with the Friday 8:00am position at 24.5N 62.5W (we are at 64.4W) but come on guys, help Igor on his way...


Picture Igor as a volleyball and lob him back over the net to the north :)

Hope you are having a nice weekend. It's a beautiful day in St Croix.

So It Goes...
