I added your weather to the webpage, that is if I got it right.  Dominica
comes up as Roseau DMA does that sound right?

No zipcode here in Dominica, but our weather is as unpredictably crazy 
as U.S. weather sounds.  Used to be that Nov-Feb was best growing season 
-- mostly sunny days, frequent (usually night time, early A.M.) rain.  
Now we're having weeks on end without rain; then weeks with nothing 
but.  Farmers afraid to plant.  Market short of most everything since 
earlier weather (summer-fall) so violently rainy that crop after crop 
washed out.  It's like starting all over in a new place without past 
experience/wisdom to guide.  We're trying to reduce risk via diversity 
but that also increases work load and probably moderates potential income.

So many thanks to all of you on the list for the many contributions of 
self and wisdom over the year.  Best wishes for Happy Holidays and a 
peaceful, healthful, joyful and bountiful New Year.
