Uh Oh! There’s a real live hurricane out there in the Caribbean and it seems to be heading this way. I’ve been watching this system develop over the last couple of days. Yesterday it was predicted to curve north and cross Cuba and then go bother Florida. Last night it was still a Tropical Storm and was predicted to come a little closer to the Yucatan. But I still didn’t worry.
Now it’s a hurricane and according to the National Hurricane Center Cancun and the Riviera Maya are within the 5-Day Track Forecast Cone. Uh Oh!
The first thing I thought when I heard that Hurricane Gustav might be headed toward Cancun is that “I don’t have time to prep for a hurricane and then face a possible power outage, I’ve got too many other things to do.” And I know that one of my favorite charities in Cancun, the City of Joy Foundation, is supposed to have major fund-raising Golf Tournament this weekend. So I’m upset with Hurricane Gustav because this is just rotten timing.
But being grumpy won’t get the house ready for a hurricane. So today I will begin determining what we’ve got to do to get the house and ourselves ready in case this ill-timed hurricane decides to have it’s way with us. I’ll keep you posted.
