Forecast for Ambergris Caye Weather: It’s a wet one.
So far we have had about 3 inches rain from Tropical Storm Karl and it does not look like it is stopping anytime soon. TS Karl is hitting north of us and the wunderground tracking map shows it alternating between a tropical storm – tropical depression and category 1 hurricane. Even though it is not directly over us, it is causing a lot of rainy weather in Belize. I did a quick check of the windows when I woke up and was pleased there was no water around them. Went to go let Molly out and found a big puddle by the front door – the rain was blowing that way and found it’s way in through the space between the door and jam. Of course neither Molly or Basil wanted to go outside.

10:am looks like rain is finally letting up a bit.
5:03pm busy day doing behind the scenes work as a result did not blog as much as I had planned. Paul going to pick up sausages on the way home so I can cook us a nice meal. It is cooler now so I will bake them in the oven with veggies on the side.
5:33 switched gears and trying to dig myself out of the hole for sorting and catching up on emails. Need to add a fundraising/volunteer option to my gmail filing system. Been working through details of Alan’s fabulous donation for 10 pairs of rain boots (Size 9=2; Size 10=4, size 11=4. Total of 10 pairs) to the very worthy San Mateo Empowerment project. Letting Kim who is heading the project know of the donation and how Eric and Vernon helped co-ordinate getting the boots down with Tm Tam and the Word at Work Church in Amarillo Texas. TT is always willing to lend a hand and does such great work here in Belize.
7:56pm cooking dinner was a total flop – it was going really well and then poof the gas tank empty. We never got any warning signs this was coming – usually we can tell by a slight smell that the tank is running low so we get it filled in time.
