For those of you who like to follow this kind of thing, Dominica is 15.41 degrees north (of the equator) and 61.37 degrees west (of Greenwich). The Commonwealth of Dominica is one of the Windward Islands in the Eastern Caribbean, lying between Guadeloupe to the north and Martinique to the south. It is the Leeward Islands, to the north of us, that Irma battered.
At 5 PM today, Thursday, Jose was at 15.5 N and 52.4 W. It is predicted that Jose will veer north and west of us and head for the already ruined islands of Nevis, Barbuda, St. Martin.  Saturday probably
It is remarkably quiet here in Portsmouth. The sea is surging, but not roiling. It is hot and humid and rainy with occasional gusts of wind. People are going about their daily business. School has started, everything is open, and we ready for whatever.
Nothing much happened to my tropical garden as Irma passed except that the sour sop tree got a sea blast, lost all its leaves on one side. But the fruit hung on! amazing
The good news is after losing all their wickets on the first day of a five day cricket match, the West Indies are still in a strong position by taking 4 English wickets by the end of the day.
By the way, Dominica is pronounced Dom-NEEK-a
The Ocean gives back all the sh*t we gave it
All boats are on shore

The Sour Sop Tree got a sea blast, but the fruit hung on
