Tropical Storm Irene


Tropical Storm Irene looks set to do some damage in the not too distant future. Possibly affecting Florida by Friday. Luckily, again, Trinidad and Tobago will not be affected but some may want to blame this on God being a Trini.

Tropical Storm Bonnie?


Tropical Storm Bonnie?

Yesterday, Wednesday, it looked like it was about to fizzle. Today, it looks set to hit the  oil contaminated Gulf as Hurricane TS Bonnie. I am no expert but Florida looks safe but not the Gulf.

Trinidad Rain


Rain-August14th-2009So, yesterday we had another day of strange weather as a tornado landed near Mucarapo Road and close to Eric Mackie, CNC3‘s Weather Man. I did not see any images from Mackie so I assumed he did not have his camera or cell phone with him. It seemed Port of Spain was flooded again and I don’t blame the government for the amount of plastic bottles and Kia Pride motor cars that floated down the Dry River to form a dam near a bridge any beaver would be proud of. I blame the owners.

I was fortunate to be home and with my camera at around 2:30 pm when the rain started to come in from South to North. I put together an animated GIF showing one and a half minutes of the rain event. No tornados this time.

Where is My Sahara Dust, Mr. Mackie


Weather Prediction - Carnival 2009

Weather Prediction - Carnival 2009

Mr. Mackie, you are our weather man and we depend on you for our weather. You know about rain and flood and clouds and Sahara Dust. You know what we like. Google told me we are in the dry season but I only see rain. I know about Trinidad and Tobago weather, Mr. Mackie,  and Google is right. So, Mr. Mackie, where is our Sahara Dust and our sun?  Please, give us an answer and please, give us hope.

I am only writing this because  things look a little bleak for Carnival Monday and Tuesday next week. I hope the forecast is wrong and I hope you would say so. You are our weatherman and you must know better. Tell us the truth, Mr. Mackie, and make it go away. We don’t want any more bad news. We don’t need anymore bad news. We want sun on our backs and dust in our face. We want oil to go up so our PM won’t be sad. He is so sad these days. We want our money in our banks. We want the crooks in our jail.  We want to jam and whine and take plenty pictures. So, Mr. Mackie, tell us we will have a good time and please, tell us today.
