I was thinking about you and am REALLY glad you didn't end up going. TWC has just said that the Caymans are next.

Just an update in case you don't have the weather channel on today.

At least 76 lives have already been lost in the Caribbean because of Gustav. They are doing some mandatory evacuations in La. today so they must think that's the path it will take, unless of course it suddenly veers off.

Just going to watch the update now.

Thanks Jammie. Bless you.

Looks like GC got through Gustav good. Not so good for Cayman Brac and Little Cayman - they were right in the eye. No loss of live from what I have read so that is the important thing.

Haven't heard yet what happened on Cuba. Sending God Bless to them and the US.

Keeping an eye on stormcarib.com - looks like a lot of action off the coast of Africa which heads to the Caribbean & US. Looks like it's not a good idea to head to the Caribbean anytime soon.

Saw that right now Florida basically has Gustav on one side and Hanna on the other. Yuck! Best of luck.

Good grief - our trip to Cayman was cancelled by Gustav. We are scheduled to go to Grand Turk (Turks & Caicos) in January. T&C just got hit by Ike - sounds like Provo made it through pretty good. They are having a hard time getting reports on Grand Turk but sounds like it was realy blasted there.

God bless all on all the islands. They are having a rough year.

Vec, it sounds like you are a weather jinx. Join the club. As I research areas of warmth for future relocation, they are sure to be hit with something awful.

Just watched video of Grand Turk on the webcast of T&C TV. WIV 4 Hurricane Feed It is sooo bad. Looks like Provo is pretty good but GT is very very bad. Can't believe there was no loss of life.
