Rain, glorious rain!
At last, were getting some substantial rain here in STT instead of just the brief, fast shower that evaporates as it hits the ground!
I hope you're sharing in the beneficial rains, too, STX!
The last few days we've had a couple rain showers and it has already made a difference in the plants in my yard. My Caromblo started to put out little flowers and green grass is struggling to grow on road going up to fire station. Much remains burnt out brown tho.
Nice steady downpour! Thank goodness!
Yea not mush out west STX at all. A spurt last night bout 11 and hats been pretty much it. BUT we do have invest 96L coming at us now off Africa. 40% chance or developing cyclonic action that say. Nothing big but should bring some rain. I can NOT get over how bad the livestock looks here. Many of the horses I see looks near death and the poor goats! Even the huge cows when you're coming out of the rainforest towards the pier look pretty hungry. All the fields looks dry as can be. 🙁
Wave Brings Rain to St. Thomas, St. John, Brushes St. Croix
Just for fun, one can calculate how much water fell on the USVI in that 2003 November month deluge. Figure about 1.5 feet (18 inches) of rain fell on 133,000 sq miles over 30 days. That works out to 5.6 billion cubic feet of rain water in total. Since there are about 7.5 gallons of water in a cubic foot, that translates to 42 billion gallons. That's a lot of fresh water.
Tropical depression 4 is now in Atlantic. Could be TS Danny by end of day
