More thoughts on weather

Peering through the louvers towards Ross hill, I can see the rain clouds approaching.
The heat has been building these past few days and this tropical wave will bring a welcome relief to all of us here in Grenada. However, it is not easy to enjoy our respite. All of us here that experienced Hurricane Ivan, know full well how the people of the Turks and Cacaos must be feeling and can only imagine the horror of what is happening in Haiti. We fear for our friends in Cuba who brought light to this village after five months without any. It is impossible to truly explain how it feels to survive a major hurricane.
I watch The Weather Channel with despair. I know this is an American programme but the reporting on their Tropical Update section is so unsympathetic to the peoples of the Caribbean that it enrages me. Here is an opportunity, if ever there was one, to invite aid and assistance and yet we are glanced over with barely a mention, unless the weather system in question, is likely to affect the U.S.
Thunder rolls above my head and brings an end to this post.

  1. What a lovely blog you have from the gorgeous Spice Island. Thank you for stopping by my blog and being so kind to leave your comment.

    We've been watching the progress of this hurricane season, of course from the American point of view. I'm so sorry that Americans can be so self centered. How are you faring thus far? My best to you and my prayers for your safety and the safety of your neighbors.

  2. Many thanks Wooly Works, we are doing alright, if a liitle hot, sorry for ranting, what we really need is a proper weather channel of our own, I admire the bigness of your heart and aim to follow your caring example.

  3. G'day! I am an Australian radio presenter and I have a blog-based program called Hair of the Blog.

    I would love to cross to you on my program, to talk about your thoughts in this entry. Really interesting. Can you please get in touch asap (i'm hoping to do a cross between 4.30 and 7.30pm Saturday afternoon your time: crowther.michelle@gmail.com

    Thanks in advance,

  4. Hi Michelle, thanks for your comments on my blog. Sorry, but due to a misunderstanding between my computer and adobe flash player, I think, (yes everything is plugged in and working and no , nothing has been muted,) am unable to hear anything at this time. Good luck with the programme and keep up the good work. Also, feel slightly guilty about my comments since Ike made landfall in Texas.
    Best wishes to everyone.


thanks for visiting, it is lovely to see you here.
