Today Is National Coffee Day

Our 3rd cup of coffee for the morning is almost ready and my better half just read that today is National Coffee Day.


I'll drink to that :)

So It Goes...

The Royal Terns Are Back... WELCOME

Last week we saw the return of Royal Terns. This is cool because to us it means the end of those summer storms.

Great to see you guys. Hope you had a nice vacation.

This is the next system out in the Atlantic...

Invest 93L - Hurricane Model Sept 14 2015 - Wunderground

which doesn't appear to be coming our way :)

Tomorrow is Hurricane Marilyn's 20th anniversary in the USVI. Glad we missed that one!

So it is going...

Maybe we should leave our storm anchors down

UPDATED after 11:00am forecast... 

What's up with this?

WELL, it is now this...

5-Day Forecast Cone - NOAA/NHC
September 5, 2015 - Tropical Depression Seven

Might become Tropical Storm Grace tomorrow...  Wonderful :(

Yes, I think we'll be leaving the storm anchors down for a few more days (after checking them out, of course)

[Back to the earlier post...]

It's still early days though.  Lots of time for it to fizzle or head more to the north. Hopefully it will not even get a name.

Remember Hurricane Marilyn? It has been 20 years... She hit St Thomas on September 15-16, 1995.

Have a wonderful Labor Day Weekend!
