Pouring BUCKETS out west, don't know about the rest of the island right now.

Hoping everyone gets a little bit of this wonderful, much-needed rain, especially the FARMERS!!!!!

No.
No storms just lots of nice gentle rain. Lots of people still have tarps for roofs.

STJ definitely had a good pour with some winds. Had to shut all the louvered windows completely because the rain was blowing in. Could use more though. Of the slower soaking kind. STJ is pretty brown. The guts are still a mess... so there was lots of standing water in town. Especially by Starfish. Sounds like the government is starting to put some work into the guts in the territory.

We got a lot yesterday too. Went out in the rain boots and coat to figure out how to help the water go where it needs to be going. We had a lot of grass and small plants take root in the areas where the water used to flow nicely. Stormwater is one of our biggest problems because we live in a natural gut. We've had our estate road graded three times since Maria and we still aren't there yet. Looking forward to seeing the island green again though!
