    I would rather take 5 days of sand clouds than 5 days of stressing over a coming Cat 5.

    I would have never thought that it could reach as far as the Caribbean. It gets hazy, and my memory as a kid, are every single kids from the neighborhood kids conjunctivitis.
    isnt that the wind they call The Doctor?

    From that it looks like it may never get here and drop in the sea, that's all we need here.

    Most of the trees on Sosua beach have lost their leaves, or in the processes of loosing, all the leaves are dead, presumably due to Irma and Maria taking the sea salt water and bashing them for hours and hours. An small breeze and they fall down. Everyone is doing their best to clean up but it will be a while before they all fall and re-grow green again....

    Wasn't this supposed to start yesterday?   Anyone seeing more dust?  I honestly can't tel., although we have a rather strange looking sky today.
