    The children will love that. Some of them are too small to know the dangers of a hurricane.
    I recall those days when I was at school and school was closed when a hurricane was announced and approaching Dominica.
    We would get a lot of rain with thunder and lightning. We once got the tail of a hurricane; not as dangerous as the eye of a hurricane.
    If there was one thing I hated was the peal of thunder. I hated it to adulthood. If I was in bed I would cover my head/ears, trying to block out the loud noise. :lol: :lol: :lol:

    Skerro you afraid man? Oh! Maybe that’s why Skerro warned Dominicans residing in islands destroyed by Irma to stay where they are and DON’T come to Dominica man? Maybe he knew we were still in the hurricane season and the caring PM didn’t want them to come and then for them to get stock in DA and are forced to stay here to see how people really struggling here man. He knew if they are stock here they will not vote for him and that will cause workers to win and cause Skerro to go visit Trump
