    I have said the exact same thing to ross - if we cant go then I think we'll avoid strom season all together next time we go! I cant beleive it - its just my luck! Oh well - better go to work - its gonna be a long night and I bet I dont sleep a wink through the day like I'm supposed to - god I hate this - I feel sick. I quit smoking 2 months ago and this is enough to drive me back to the fags LOL!!!- I know I'm being a little selfish and I hope to god no matter what happens that the guys in Cancun stay safe!!

    hi all,

    I hope it doesnt hit!

    We are due to fly from the UK on Thursday morning.... do you think it may be worth ringing the insurance company and cancelling???

    I would leave it a little longer before cancelling if you can. In 24 hrs we'll know if it's more likely or less likely that Cancun will be affected to any extent.

    If it stays on it's current course then there may be a couple of days of rain wind and some high surf but probably back to normal within 48-72 hrs. It's not looking anything like a major problem in the same way as Hurrican Wilma was. But it's still a long way out.

    also for those not familiar with gulf hurricanes - these hurricanes typically cause the most noise to the east and north side of the storm - oftentimes with these gulf hurricanes very little (if any impact) is felt to the west and south of these events

    i should also point out the national weather service has improved dramatically in the last 10 years in predicting where these storms will go - just last week they had fay's northern turn, eastern turn, northern turn, and then sharp western turn 100% accurate

    the national hurricane center is presently predicting this one to go well to the north of canun and if they are as accurate as they have been over the last several years and the storm stays relatively small - and keeping in mind the north and east sides of the storm are oftentimes the only areas to see any real intensity

    all that taken into account - i like our chances of some great weather

    now if it changes and the storm is scheduled to go south of cancun - then ill be worried a lil

    the best

    What about the three depressions behind gustav, So far we are seven for seven for depressions turning into tropical storms so this could be really really bad.

    We were there in July when Dolly came over, ended up getting drunk and going skinny dipping at the beach in the middle of it! Hurricane paties can be a blast
