We have had snow about every third day, only 3 to 6 inches at a time but it all adds up. A couple of things that make the "winter" tolerable is the thought of global warming and and my wood fired hot tub. We have been diving out of my rib a few times but the seas have suck most of the time but been fun rides

Throw another log on the fire, close eyes and pretend.....

Weather Summary For The U.s. Virgin Islands
National Weather Service San Juan Pr
1039 Pm Ast Fri Feb 15 2008

Skies Were Mostly Clear This Evening...as Very Dry And Pleasant
Conditions Prevailed Throughout The Islands. Winds Were Mostly
From The East At 10 To 15 Mph And Coastal Temperatures Were In The
Mid To Upper 70s.

High Pressure Remains Firmly In Control Providing Mostly Dry And Breezy
Local Conditions. Patches Of Moisture In The Northeast Wind Flow
Will Affect The Area Throughout The Next Several Days Bringing
Periods Of Passing Shower Activity. However...these Showers Will
Generally Be Quick To Pass And Light To Moderate In
Nature...mostly Occurring During Nighttime. This Typical Winter
Pattern Is Expected To Persist Through The Upcoming Week.

For The Overnight...expect A Few Scattered Showers With Minimal
Rainfall Amounts. By Saturday Morning...the Area Will See A Return
Of Clearer Skies And Very Pleasant Weather For Most Of The
Day...with The Chance Of A Few Showers Again By Saturday Night.

Due To The Fresh Trade Wind Flow Across The Regional Waters...
Offshore Seas Remain Above 7 Feet In Easterly Swells. Small Craft
Advisories Remain In Effect For The Offshore Atlantic And For All Of
The Caribbean Coastal Waters Through Saturday Evening. Small Craft
Should Exercise Caution Across Near Shore Atlantic Waters.

We've had snow squalls all week... the only highway into town was closed for most of the last three days. Currently waiting to get nailed with another storm... heavy snow, high winds, then warming slightly causing "significant" accumulations of freezing rain... then cooling Sunday night with more snow!

On the upside... heading to Grenada shortly for a little diving and getting hitched...

Good for you Stoo! We've had really good weather this winter down here and while it's usually dry as a bone by February, we've had brief passing showers all winter, which is good for the cisterns. It's been blowing a bit but that doesn't matter much 100 feet down. There have been more whales than usual around here also including Orca which are fairly rare were spotted by a charter boat out of Christiansted the other day and photographed. One of the calves was messing with a bait but thank god left it alone before it caught a hook. I guess one could say that you and the Orca have something in common, fleeing the North and cruising the Caribbean. I'm in the middle of getting unhitched but having "hitched" three times it is obvious I don't have anything against it! Congratulations!

Tomas

John, I didn't think a little "Caribbean Dreaming" would hurt the Cabin bound

Well congratulations to you too! One of my best buds is on his 5th Missus... He too says he loves being married. I keep pointing out that it isn't necessary to marry them after the first date...

I have known all his wives, although not in the "Biblical" sense... all lovely women...
