Moving Back to Jamaica

A blog about my Move Back to Jamaica after 20+ years of living in the US. Most of the articles focus on the period from 2005-2009 when the transition was new, and at it's most challenging.

Hurricane Dean's Impact on the Cows of Jamaica

Recently, my wife has remarked that milk has been extremely difficult to find on store shelves.

Apparently, according to this newspaper report, the fault lies in Hurricane Dean and in the emotional disturbed state he left the nation's cows.

Well, I guess here is tangible proof that our economy has been affected, and remains impacted several months after the face.

The cows have been producing less milk because they are still in a state of shock due to the hurricane. Also, they are eating less grass than usual because th rains have left th grass wet.. and apparently they don't do well with wet grass.

Is this all anthropomorphism?

Apparently, not, although we humans have been experiencing the same post-Dean feelings.

It's too bad that a hurricane doesn't bring something interesting like "tender, mouthwatering beef" as our Jamaican been could benefit from a LOT of tenderizing.
