It doesn’t seem that long ago that we would pour over a hurricane map provided in the food stores or in our newspapers and plot hurricanes by marking their progress with an x ! We would also follow the hurricane advisories on battery operated radios.
Now we receive hurricane tracking information regularly on television and via the internet. I was even able to add data to my “smart” phone, so that I can continue to use the internet throughout the hurricane “unless the whole island goes down”, the BTC technician advised me when he set it up on my phone.
We’ve come a long way, baby!
