...In the U.S. Virgin Islands, Gov. John deJongh declared a state of emergency in order to impose storm curfews..
Its always interesting to compare BVI to USVI whenever we get smacked. BVI well knows that the Queen aint going to do anything other than perhaps, send one of her few remaining grey warriors (If she's got one in the area - which covers from the Falklands to the Bay of Biscay, apparently), so BVI just gets on with it. USVI on the other hand sits back lamely and says to Uncle Sam - "Send Money
- Lots of it!!" 80% of which is extremely unlikely to get to where its supposed to be used...oh, well...
Shame about Richard's house: my daughter flew back from UK to home in BVI a couple of days ago with Kate Winslet - who apparently became a bit of a heroine in helping Richard's 90 year old Mum out of the house....bless her!
