    Jen,

    When Wilma Came through Yolanda was 6 months pregnant. Because of the stress and change in pressure she did have contractions. It was rather scary and one of the reasons we left our house for the school up front in the eye.

    As a father please respect the hurricane and have access to doctors where ever you choose to stay in case anything happens.. Just be safe.

    Everyone else be safe to but, Jen more so than the others

    I concur with John. Jen should be safe. The rest of us should have a party on the roof...and try to catch flying basura...just kidding.

    hehe Rivergirl, I'm in. ;-)

    Hi TJ - The computer models definitely improved over the course of the day as far as Cancun is concerned. Earlier today at least one of the models, maybe two, had it making landfall in the Yucatan.

    Here's are the latest computer models, as of 8 p.m. None of them are predicting landfall in the Yucatan. I hate to wish a hurricane heads toward any other area, but as far as Cancun, fingers crossed that these models hold true.

    Thank you, I certainly intend to make sure I am up to date on what's happening - and it was one of my first questions to the hospital we picked as to how they manage during hurricanes.
    But as it's looking better for us this morning, I'm not so worried now.

    Forget the tuna. WalMart has one of the most sophisticated data-mining systems in the entire business world. According to WalMart the 2 most-purchased pre hurricane items are #1 beer and #2 Pop Tarts. According to their data, sales of Pop Tarts rise seven-fold prior to hurricane arrivals and beer even more.

    I know we have the beer situation covered, but has anyone ever seen Pop Tarts in a Mexican WalMart?

    walmart

    I wish I could find Pop Tarts! I'd stock up for sure!

    I was just in Walmart and they have tons of tuna, beer, and all the other hurricane essentials. I haven't seen Pop Tarts in Walmart for a couple of years, however.

    So far, nobody seems to be concerned about the approaching storm.
