    AS some of you have seen, it seems the bad-weather-juju has finally caught up with me....after years of travelling during hurricane season with no problems, Walter, Cooltech, lil' castaway, her hubby and I are grounded in San Juan on our way to Bonaire, with the last flight of the day cancelled for the "hurricane passing by"....seems they're hedging their bets early.............waiting for a hotel assignment, then I guess it's off for a few consolation drinks before starting the vigil in the morning....

    Hope everyone in the path is safe, whatever way it goes.

    Bummer. Hope all are safe (as we in Florida are breathing ANOTHER sigh of relief). Peak season is 10 days away....

    Well, The Real Felix is now a Cat 4 major hurricane. Forecast track carries it very close to the Bay Islands of Honduras as possibly a Cat 5 before hitting southern Belize.
