Hurricane Dean

It is 4:42am as I write this, and we have dodged a bullet. Actually, besides a little light rain and the Malecon (seaside boulevard) being closed, you wouldn't know that there was a hurricane passing. Okay, you could tell that the waves were very agitated and strong. Huge rocks were being knocked loose, and sometimes the storm surge would spill in the streets. Otherwise, we have been blessed and spared. Since I have lived here, we have been blessed with not having any direct hits from hurricanes. This time was no different.

I know this will not always be the case.

Thank God, Anthony. Yes, thank Him. Thank God the Dominican Republic was spared. I'm so relieved to hear you and David are OK as well as everyone else on the Island.

But it looks like the situation in Jamaica could be catastrophic. I think rich countries like the US and the UK should be doing all they can to evacuate people OFF that Island. But we all know why that is, and I won't go there. My prayers are with all Jamaicans.
