And I'm upset that our cargo shipment probably didn't come in either! Nor have we been able to swim for a month. Mother nature needs to give us a break!

I read the story about the dispute about how and where taxi drivers are staging in the paper yesterday. Not sure I understood all of it, but I think the government should try to ensure that the wild wild west doesn't return. As far as the swells, I'm sure it has been a very difficult time for those running boat excursions, like our friend Bob..

I saw where some cargo vessels had been told by the port authority that they needed to leave the port, as severe swells are expected to continue.
