Tuesday Thoughts and Updates

September 30, 2014

Good morning everyone, have you looked at the calendar, today is the last day of September. Checking our weather maps we are in pretty good shape, that low pressure near Bermuda yesterday is falling apart and seems to be no threat. Over in the Pacific, Rachel that was a Hurricane yesterday is now barely a Tropical Storm and is loosing strength again posing no real problem for anyone. Just a reminder, Joey and I will be gone for two weeks beginning next week as we need to take care of some personal family business. Haiti’s Cultural Minister is saying the wreck off the Haiti coast is not the Santa Maria, one of Christopher Columbus ships. Puerto Rico rum Don Q will be the official rum of Walt Disney property in Orlando it was recently announced, this is good news because will probably mean adding more jobs. Well that’s all for now, have a great day and keep checking back.

Monday Updates

Good morning everyone, hope you had a great weekend. Well, as we start the week we are only looking at a couple days left in the month. On the weather front we have a couple of areas to report on. In the Atlantic Ocean we have a low pressure just West of Bermuda causing showers and thunderstorms. This system has the potential to develop into something bigger. as it moves to the North. This system will cause heavy rain and gusty winds for the island of Bermuda through tonight. Over in the pacific Ocean we have Hurricane Rachel located 490 miles West of the southern tip of Baja, California. This storm has winds of 75 mph and is moving North at about 5 mph. There are currently no watches or warnings issued with this storm. Well that’s all for now, have a great day and keep checking back.

Friday Wrapup

September 26, 2014

Good morning everyone and T.G.I.F. Well we have come to the end of another week and shortly another month. Heading into the weekend we only have one storm on the board and that one is located in the Pacific so it primarily a concern for our friends in mexico. Tropical Storm Rachel is located about 630 miles SSW of the southern tip of Baja, California. This storm has winds of 50 mph and is moving toward the WNW at 14 mph. There are currently no coastal watches or warnings with this storm. Baseball fans are still talking about Derick Jeeters game winning hit for the Yankees last night, the captain is retiring this year. Looks like the Powerball lottery will be coming to Puerto Rico, that should add some pretty good money to the jackpots!! Well that’s all for now, have a great week everyone and check back with us next week. Don’t forget you can get complete weather information and great programming all weekend long on One Caribbean Television. If you don’t currently receive the station, contact your local cable provider and ask them if they would add it to your lineup.

Thursday Thoughts

Good morning everyone, hope your Thursday is going well. We have a couple areas we are watching today on the weather map. First we have an elongated low pressure about 1100 miles east of the Windward Islands, this is causing disorganized showers and thunderstorms, we will continue to observe this for further development. Over on the Pacific ocean side we have another storm developing. Tropical Storm Rachel is currently 485 miles South of the Southern Tip of Baja California with winds of 40 mph and moving to the WNW at 13 mph. There are currently no coastal watches or warnings with this storm. Well that’s all for now, have a great day everyone and keep checking back.

Wednesday Thoughts and Updates

September 24, 2014

Good morning on this Wednesday “Hump Day”… checking the weather maps today we find no major storms of concern. The only thing we will be watching over the next several days is a low pressure off the Mexico coast that may try to develop further. From what Kara Coleman from One Caribbean News told me, the Caribbean Tourism organizations annual meeting in St Thomas was a huge success. many topics concerning tourism in the Caribbean were discussed, even the topic of marijuana. I guess their is some scrutiny as to whether or not the sunken remains of a Christopher Columbus ship was discovered off the coast of Haiti, hopefully we will find out shortly, that would be a major discovery. Curacao has a couple of big events coming up in November, a running race and a bicycle race, if interested you should contact the Dept of Tourism on Curacao. Casinos could soon be coming to Granada, the casinos would be in the bigger resorts but would be off limits to the locals.Well that’s all for today. Have a good one and please keep checking back with us.

A couple reminders, if you have anything going on that you would like to promote, just send it along to Joey or I and we will put it up here on our blog and also pass it along to the community calendar for One Caribbean television. Speaking of One Caribbean Television, if you do not currently receive the channel, call you cable provider and ask them if they would add the channel to your lineup.
