Batton Down the Hatches Mates, She's Gonna Be A Big Storm

This is what it looks like on the island right now, but it is night time.

And I thought when my apartment flooded two weeks ago that was bad, this is NUTS! It has been raining in St. Maarten for 3 days straight. It will let up in the mornings for a few hours and then the little drizzle comes. But by mid-day, it is a full on Monsoon. Right now, it is 8:30 at night and I sounds like the heavens have opened up the flood gates. The water is coming down in sheets with a strong wind. I wonder if this is what it is like to be a hurricane. I don't know, having never been in one and NOT wanting to either. Both my front door and my bedroom balcony doors are leaking through and all my towels are soaked. It isn't going to be pretty tonight. "Hang on Captain Sparrow we are going for a little ride."
