As every year, from June to the end of November – an eternity – the hurricane season unleashed its anger on the Caribbean. Hurricane Dean is approaching Jamaica and the close encounter will be very scary. Beyond, lay the Cayman Islands where I have many dear friends. At this time, Dean is moving NE at 16 kts with max. sustained wind speeds of 125 kts (231 km/h) and gusts of 155 kts (287 km/h), which makes it a strong category 4 hurricane.

My heart and hope go to all standing in the storm’s path.

Update: I’ve just learned that Sabine, adorable Mathieu and Ann are safely tucked in New Orleans. Thank you Danny. Marc is waiting it out in Fort Lauderdale. Good. PJ, where are your bones?
