Battening Down the Hatches

Just a quick update, because hurricane Dean is bearing down on us, and looks to be a cat 5 by the time it hits us here in the Yucatan. We are frantically boarding things up, and then are headed for higher ground tomorrow, inland in Merida. I will post an update (and hopefully some photos) tomorrow afternoon, but until then, wish us good luck, and we will post as often as we can.

  1. Glad to know you are evacuating to Merida. Hope Tripod is able to go with you to the safer space. Looking forward to your post-storm posts and in the meantime sending positive thoughts that you and yours will be spared any serious harm. Mexico seems to do a much better job of dealing with hurricanes than the US.

  2. Our fingers are crossed. Stay safe!

  3. Will be thinking of you guys. Take care of each other.

  4. Hold fast in Inland.

  5. On the bright side: Maybe this will wash away all the spiders?

  6. I’m going to go ahead and vote no on this whole hurricane thing.

    Punch Mother Nature in the ovaries. Right in the baby maker.

  7. good luck guys, stay safe!!

  8. Millie and the rest of the cat blogosphere will be praying for you!! BTW, does the story of Tripod sound vaguely familiar…LOL…like Millie!!

  9. Looks like us Texans dodged this one. Sorry to hear it is headed your way. You all get to really high ground, okay.
    KC, my reepurrter kitten, has posted this on both the Cat Blogosphere and on the Pet Prayer & Praise Blog. You’ll have lots of purrs and purr-rayers.
