For the soon come conclusion of a second hurricane season in a row with no major tropical storm disasters. Dorian barely winked at us, and Sebastien did not even glance our way. For that we are most grateful.

As a people and a place, we suffered terribly in 2017, and thus we dread the June 1-November 30 period in which storm threats loom. But today, as we enjoy sunshine and calm breezes, we can see how blessed we are to be right here right now.
