The Fisherman/Weather Mod
- Feb 28, 2006
has nothing to do with TS Fiona.I've got cats and dogs coming down at the moment here in San Cristobal.
We are still not under it's influence, this rain on/off weather we had even here on the east for some evenings/nights, with thunder(ask my dog hiding for hrs in the closet after just a single Thunder in a distance, lol.
This TS keeps looking like passing S of the Mona Passage, and then somewhere after doing it's turn NW.
It is not a strong nor organized system/Storm, but it carries some heavy water loads on it's sides which point towards our Island
and as we know, the Water is the Danger for so many areas.
We will see how it may go down some notches on Winds while approaching, but as usual, we will know such on very short notice,
as no model could predict the changes/moves of such weak thing when it goes over the windward Islands and then may or may not get hit by PR Mountains influence.
This can all change in a heart beat.
The smart thing to do is to prepare for loads of water coming down, if it brings finally less, nothing to complain about.
I personally hope it keeps it's forward speed, or even speeds up, as I have a very nice Saona Island Group booked for monday, can be changed to Tuesday,
but if it comes in/out too slow the waters on the south would still be rough on Tuesday.
Well, that's part of biz anyways, sometimes good, sometimes you have to scratch some income off.
As for the Ranch, this year provided us with much more water than we would have expected for this spring/summer so far,
zero loss of cattle/animals, all is green pastures, plentiful food for all walking meat around.
Fiona will keep it watered, luckily I am not vulnerable to flooding, any waterload would be on it's comfy place within a couple days after any extraordinary rainfall.
We keep watching, as this whole thing can change a lot for this weekend.
Just in case, keep Generators fueled, beer fridges stocked and the girls cooing those good meats,
so long nothing really bad will happen, just a sunday with family at home, watching Netflix, eating and drinking and Life is just Fine.
