Erika: Lemonade out of a lemon

Erika turned out to be a non-event.  The tropical storm ran out of gas – er, wind – and breezed past St. Croix to the south and became what the meteorologists call a depression.

And while there was some rain and wind, some folks managed to see the bright side of a cloudy, overcast day.


Erika-rainbow-350IARiverRat spent some of the day in a St. Thomas bar – watching the rain. “The locals smile because rain is a source of fresh water,” the Rat said. 

And Gerry Singer, guidebook-author extraordinaire, found a rainbow after the storm. TWO of them. “Just before sunset an approaching squall gave us this spectacular double rainbow,” be blogged at St. John Life.
