After The Hurricane is the sequel to Ti Domnik Tales, which covers my experiences as an expatriate on Dominica from 1997 – 2016. When Hurricane Maria struck the Nature Island on September 18, 2017, I was in Canada. Although I had returned to my home and native land just over a year before that devastating storm tore the beautiful country apart, I had never lost my desire to return to Dominica the following winter. As it turned out, I did get my wish, but under completely different circumstances than what I had originally anticipated.
Here you will find my experiences, thoughts and interactions during my visit to Dominica in January, February and March 2018. However, the ongoing story actually began on the afternoon of September 17, 2017, and will no doubt continue well in to the future.

Although I no longer physically reside full time on the Nature Isle, my heart has never actually left my adopted country, as evidenced in these posts. For further information about me, please consult the About section in Ti Domnik Tales and Canary Gal, my other two blogs.
