Playing 'chicken' in the hurricane season.

It ain't over yet.....

The number of boats already streaming out of the Rio is quite astounding, given that there is another three weeks until the end of the 2008 hurricane season.

This satellite photo shows the next potential development of a tropical storm, the pundit on weatherunderground giving it a 40% chance of becoming a hurricane...The area has become better defined over the last few hours and it's centre is currently situated at 12N 81W.

I find it scary how lightly some folks take the issue of weather in this part of the Caribbean, guess they are either uninsured or just don't think it can happen to them. Me? I'd rather play it safe every time!
