Daily Herald story

Be alert for possible heavy downpours. By the way, is the island greening up? I think that there has been more rain than before our recent trip in June?

There’s some green out there but still a lot of brown. Very rainy last night and so far this morning.

OK, just be careful. Sounds like a good day to stay 'home', wherever that is..

We were st the Towers one April and were shocked by how ‘brown’ the island was, and dismayed because our SIL was flying in primarily to play the SXM Open at Mullet. And of course, to enjoy his SXM vacation, too The Wednesday evening before his arrival it started to rain. Not heavy downpours but just a nice gentle ground-soaking rain. We woke up Thursdsy morning and literally, we sat out on our balcony and got to watch the grass turn green. By the time he arrived the course was green and the golfers had a great Saturday/Sunday event. It doesn’t take much.......


Respectfully,

pat

Just saw a post on Facebook from a local driving in the Coupcoy/ Mullet area. Lots of flooding and hazardous driving conditions with rocks and mud on roadways trying to make it back to her home at Point Blanch. Also lightning strikes. Be careful out there.

Yeah, although it seems like it should pass over either Hispanola or Cuba, so hopefully even if it forms, can't get too wound up. (Knock on wood!!)

Bill just picked me up from the airport and on the way home drive around a couple cars stuck in Lake Mullet. Reports of flooding in many areas.

I figured Lake Mullet would be in place. Glad you got home OK!

Yep, the water runs off since it can not soak in and will eventually find the low spots and accumulate.
