Thursday Thoughts

Good morning everyone, hope your Thursday is off to a good start. Just a few thoughts from our trip to Brooklyn for the West Indian American Day Carnival. We had a great time and am always impressed with the organization of the event itself. Obviously there are many people in the New York area with roots in the Caribbean and they are quite proud of their heritage and it shows. Joey and I had a wonderful time and feel bad that again this year there were some problems with the overnight celebration. It only takes a few bad apples to spoil the bunch. I truly believe that those individuals looking to cause trouble are not there to celebrate and probably could care less about the Caribbean and their wonderful heritage. With that said, Joey and I look forward with great anticipation to returning next year to celebrate the 50th year of Carnival in Brooklyn. Checking the weather maps this morning, there are two areas we are watching. There is a broad area of low pressure causing showers and thunderstorms about 350 miles east of the Leeward islands. This system will be slow to develop as it moves W-NW. We are also watching a Tropical Wave with a large disorganized area of disturbance about 500 miles southwest of the Cabo Verde islands. This could become a Tropical Depression early next week as it moves W-NE into the Central Atlantic. Well, that’s all for now, don’t forget Joey and I will be headed to Barbados next week for the Caribbean Tourism Organization meeting. Have a great day everyone.
