Welcome! Tally ho!

Our B.V.I. Adventure is designed to give our family, friends and any other interested followers a look into the life of two expatriates making their way on the island of Tortola. Tortola is the largest island in the British Virgin Islands.

So, why did we move 2,000 miles away from our home in Knoxville, Tennessee? Michael accepted a position as the director of retail and international sales for a Caribbean clothing brand.

Subtropical Depression Wreaks Havoc on Tortola

Much of the BVI has been under one very large rain cloud these past few days.  According to the local forecasters, if this storm organizes any further, it could become Otto.  Currently, it's hovering at Subtropical Depression 17 status.

Well, "yet-to-be-named" Otto, you could have fooled me.  You've been lashing our little island for three days straight now.  There's flash flooding in Road Town.  The government has closed schools and offices.  We haven't seen the sun in more than 48 hours, which has caused me to - GASP - wear a sweater! 

Here are some photos of the roads...

Crazy, right?  I think it's time Subtropical Depression 17 moves on outta here!
