    It's pretty bad outside, with the wind howling and rain.

    I have a catamaran booze cruise to Isla tomorrow with 30 people... should be fun!

    Good Luck

    We were on the Dolphin Discovery ferry back to Cancun when this hit, holy (insert expletive here). Teeth chattering, uncontrollable shivering, wet, cold wind, waves and a tough docking job for the captain. On the way back downtown we saw one of the pirate ships had crashed up against the bridge with all its Christmas lights aglow (and banging in the wind).

    And today? Brrrrrrrr. (And yet it's 20 C).

    Sorry about your cruise Steve. :(

    I saw the pirate ship too! I thought maybe they meant to do that but then I took a closer look at the bridge and there was some damage.....meanwhile I'm driving over it thinking....is this bridge going to hold???

    Just coming back from Holbox. It was awful over there last night and this morning... but I am back :lol: means the boats (some at least) crossed.

    By the way, thanks for the info about the new road. And the Km! Because there is no indication in either way, so it is a good guess :D

    We went over to Isla Mujeres today and the crossing was very rough and choppy. It was a terribly cold day to be anywhere near the water. But my kid still had fun driving a golf cart all over the place.

    If this were a hurricane it would by definition by WARMER! I'm afraid this is most definitely not tropical weather, it's arctic. I've heard there is worry of freezing temps in Florida; when that happens you know it's bad.
