I am a grandmother paddling alone over 2,500 miles from Maine to Guatemala. Along the way I will be:
- telling the story of the children who live in the Guatemala City garbage dump community
- honoring their entrepreneurial mothers
- talking about the success of the Safe Passage model school and
- raising funds for additional grades for the school.

El Nino making it very wet in Florida this winter

Look out Florida Keys!
The world is experiencing it's third ever super El Nino.  The related weather predictions for Florida this winter are grim.  Way above average rain.  Even more than predicted for California.  Could be a very soggy time as I kayak along the Florida Keys!  We have already been flooded in one campsite, where we had to walk through six inches of water surrounding our camper.  In biking I have often had to ride through flooded streets.

Earliest ever Atlantic hurricane forms.  I thought I had already made it through both hurricane seasons of the expedition, but the weather it is a changing.

Record rains today.  Normal is 0.75 inch month to date, but this year it's 3.74 - five times the usual rain!  Todays rain was a record 1.46 inches.  The older record was 1.22 back in 1944.  We are so lucky!  But then all my friends in Maine and the northeast with their snow and cold will not get too excited about a little water down here in Florida
