Rejoice

Rejoice! The Hurricane track is moving north so St Croix will get a glancing blow. On personal note the takes us out of the path in NC too. Not to discount this at all for my island of choice but this could have been much worse.

For whatever reason, I insured this trip months ago against delays, lost bags, bad weather etc. This is the first time I ever bought travel insurance.

For now I am packing and assuming I will be there after the winds and storm on Wednesday afternoon.

Yesterday I got in one more dive before I travel to St Croix for my advanced open water classes. We dove at a different quarry and I must say this place was rather shitty.

The visibility was horrible and it was bone chilling cold below 22 feet. We went down as deep as 33 feet and it was unbearable with the 5mm wetsuit we were wearing. At one point the greenish water turned mustard yellow.

We managed to dive along the wall of the quarry and elected not to have a second dive.

So not matter how much crap this storm kicks up the visibility down there it will be infinitely better to what I saw yesterday.

Fiona......

We're watching (soon come) Fiona closely, but she still shows very little development.

It would have been extremely rude of that hurricane to mess up your trip.

Better hope Fiona sticks to her projected track and development. As of this mornings forecast, she'll be passing closest to St. Croix at the same time you're projected to be landing here.

As I recall last year I landed to an approaching tropical storm Johnny Quest style. Fear not for I train for these types of situations. There is a small bar at the departure gate in Miami that will become my situation room should the need arise.

You may have a Johnny Quest take-off, dodging major feeder bands from Earl and then have to paratroop in to your pink villa.
