Maybe I am jumping the gun too fast but after that little bit of rain last Wednesday, I don’t think so. The system is now borderline orange and orange is not very good nor is it too bad. I am not saying the system will form into a storm or hurricane but I am saying am I very concerned. God is not a Trini and ask any victim of heavy rains and winds in this country and you would know I am right. I never liked the name Colin for a storm and much prefer female names like Anya, Latoya, Gabriela or even Wendy for a storm which will make an impression. Lets hope this system will fizzle but it’s that time of year where every possibility looks dangerous.
UPDATE (01-08-2010): According to predictions, no islands or landmass will be threatened except the possibility of the US when the storm might be in a weakened state. All this is subject to change as the hours and days go by.
