    trade winds or lack thereof

    spoke to an acquaintance on island today and she told me that the winds still are not quite back up to speed

    when the winds blow............aaaahhhhh
    when they cease......................argh!!!!!!!!!!

    a windless day in aruba is still better than a great day in the state of maine (just my opinion)

    another tropical depression formed in the caribbean overnight.
    (next name is Hanna)
    yup aruba outta the hurricane belt for the most part.
    but when there is one in the caribbean it seems to suck the trade winds outta aruba due to the storm's air circulation.

    puff, i will do my trade wind magic spell for you.
    when will u be on island?
    can i fit in your luggage?
    i fold nicely.

    Hi...We all have to admire AndreaJ's sense of humor. Her answer about the trade winds and lack thereof is a splendid example.
