    good words....."and a weakening
    trend is expected to begin later today"

    At 800 AM AST (1200 UTC), the center of Tropical Storm Bret was
    located near latitude 11.1 North, longitude 63.6 West. Bret is
    moving toward the west-northwest near 21 mph (33 km/h), and this
    general motion is expected to continue through today. On the
    forecast track, the center of the tropical storm will continue to
    move across the southeastern Caribbean Sea today.

    Surface observations from the eastern Caribbean Sea indicate that
    the maximum sustained winds are near 45 mph (75 km/h) with higher
    gusts. Little change in strength is forecast today, and a weakening
    trend is expected to begin later today and Bret is forecast to
    become a tropical depression on Wednesday.

    Tropical-storm-force winds extend outward up to 125 miles (205 km)
    primarily to the north of the center.

    The estimated minimum central pressure is 1008 mb (29.77 inches).[/QUOTE]

    Hey All!! T&T came through Tropical Storm Bret (or as I call it, "Father Harvey's Revenge.")relatively okay. There was flooding in low lying areas and loss of power in some areas. But all in all, not too bad. Did not get much sleep that night due to the noise from the mango tree and its green mangoes banging against my roof. Thankfully as my pace of employment was closed on the 20th I was able to catch up with my lost sleep throughout the day with short naps here and there. From what I gather it's died down, so the ABC islands are safe. If it had passed nearby, Aruba, Bonaire and Curacao would have been looking at a lot of flooding. If anyone remembers the flooding from last year, it would have been another replay of that. Thankfully no such replay.

    In a side note, a friend of mine was on her way back from Cancun and had to connect through Panama. The flight took off Monday night expecting to arrive in T&T before the storm. They had to turn back as the airport was closed. Copa Air put the passengers up in the RIU Hotel in Panama City, with meals. Looks like in addition to being on time Copa Air looks out for their passengers.
