Tropical Storm Ana

tropical storm

This image is distressing. We live on the west coast of Puerto Rico and this image places us between an invisible path between Monday and Tuesday. All summer I've been planting and attending the gardens so they're lush and jungle-ish. Now Ana threatens.
We're from New Orleans and we've seen our share of nasty storms, from Hurricane Camille in '69, to Hurricane George in '98 and Katrina in 2005.
My brothers lost their businesses in Hurricane Katrina. It took us a year for things to get back to normal after Hurricane George. So this storm is small in comparison.
The National Hurricane Center estimate we could get between 3 to 5 inches of rain. This isn't much, but take a look at the video below. I took it this past week from our normal rainy season rains.

Nice video, and that's just a little rain can you imagine what it would be like if Ana had touched ground. Keep up the good work.
