Re: Watch this storm !!

dang, I hate when this happens.

makes me want to run away down wind to the Rio Dulce, where I can wear funny hats with impunity and sit in a hammock for days at a time learning how to shuck coconuts with a machete and operate single side band radios

Bigger again this morning.

Passage weather has it turning a bit and the eye just missing the Leewards.

Fingers crossed.
