Hello Cathy,

This is "SCIBUG," whose "Hiking Dominica" post you recently replied to. Small world, we are 50 miles north of Syracuse. SU is the wife's and my alma mater. Have a bodacious time in Dominica! We're leaving on our first trip there August 10th, and staying until the 26th. Looking forward to hearing about your experience!! If you care to contact us off forum, e-mail sciguy2015@hotmail.com. Here is a great storm tracking website if you're not already familiar with it:


It has a couple of online tools that allow you to select an island of interest, and determine how close the storm is, closest anticipated approach, etc. Pretty cool! I've always been interested in tracking Atlantic storms, even before they start making news in the "mainstream" press. However, it really concentrates the mind when one has a personal stake in the matter.
