Last September I blogged through the night (my September archive is dominated by it) when Hurricane Igor battered the island throughout the night. It was a scary experience coming a day after I had knee surgery and was hobbling around on crutches.
The hurricane season is with us again and Bermuda is set to have it’s first 2011 brush with nature on Thursday as Tropical Storm (a named storm is not classified as a hurricane unless it has sustained winds of at least 74 mph) Bret passes by the island.
Bret is travelling slowly but is gusting at around 63 mph. However Bret will pass almost 300 miles off to our west so brings no danger but gusty showers will prevail with probable thunderstorms and hopefully at last some rain to perk the garden up a tad as Bermuda is 12 inches behind it’s average annual rainfall.
