So keep us Sploofers here in Grand Cayman in your thoughts, and hopefully I'll be back online sometime next week if all goes well, wish us luck!!! Cathy in Cayman

I do send you every good wish. Will never forget the hurricanes-5, I believe, that devastated the Orland, Fl. area in 2004 It was a terrifying experience-one I had never experienced before and hope never to again-even strong winds and rain make me nervous-actually used to enjoy storms. You and yours are in my thoughts-Linda

I've seen the Hurricane coverage on Hurricane Dean, and they do expect it to be a bad one. May God bless you and your family, and anyone in the path of the hurricane. Our thoughts and prayers are with you Cathy! Hopefully it will be over soon without too much damage!

All the best, Cathy, my heart and my hopes will be with you as you safely ride out the storm. Keep posting as long as you can so we know you're okay, and let us know as soon as you are able if you lose power - we'll be worried.

Cathy, we'll be praying for you here in Florida. I was in coastal Alabama during Ivan, and it beat us up. But we recovered. Keep yourself safe, and stockpile water, food and dry clothes if you can. Our thoughts are with you!

Good Luck Cathy!
Buy stock in Duracell
Fill up your gas tanks! (Learned that one!)
And get as many coolers and ice as you can!

Our prayers are with you, Cathy... it sounds like all my favorite Caribbean spots are in danger again. I hope you have lots of peanut butter and water! Rita

Hey Cathy! Thoughts and prayers heading your way!

We had a double-celled cyclone thru here early June.
Make sure everything outside that is loose is secured, windows taped, that you have plenty of water in sealed containers, quick'n'easy food, candles, matches, flashlight, batteries, first-aid kit.
Get yourself into an area of your home away from windows, close the doors and make yourself a secure bunker with blankets, a mattress and all the things you need.

Have a backpack at the ready with your cellphone, wallet, food, first-aid kit, change of clothes and important documents (such as car registration, passport and all insurance documents) at the ready in case you have to evacuate.
Make sure your cellphone is charged up while you still have power.

May God watch over you.....

For anyone following the storm,
the news on CNN at 10.20PM EST
said that there was very little damage in Jamaica,
but Hurricane Dean is now heading directly for
the Cayman Islands.

My sister-in-law and brother-in-law are both working out there at the moment, bracing themselves - it's their first hurricane season in the Caymens - sure they'll be fine.

The person in charge in the Cayman Islands was just on Tv talking about the comprehensive plans they have in place - so it definitely sounds as if they
are well prepared for most eventualities. I'm sure everyone will be OK.

I was a child in HongKong - but I remember the air of suppressed anxiety
during the Typhoon season. And the primitive drainage systems they had in
place, to safely channel the water running down the mountains - sweeping
everyone and everything off the Island, into the South China Sea.

I have heard that Dean's eye has passed near the Cayman Island and it is gone know. We all hope that everybody is doing well. Please let us know as soon as you can.

It looks like it is passed, but it is predicted to go Cat 5 before hitting the Yucatan. We're praying for the poor folks there. Also, the Typhoon Sepat that went over Taiwan and then into the Fujian area of Mainland China was a monster. I hope people are well there, too.

Chinese people are so used to the harshness of Nature.
That's why they are such fatalists....and like an iceberg.
It's all going on UNDER the surface.
