Hold on to your hats...
...looks like this could be the first biggie of the season.
I was looking at a sailing forum that I like today where a poster was asking advice about safe places for hurricane season. To my horror a number of posters were suggesting that various islands in the windwards and leewards were possible if in a hurricane hole!!!
Quite honestly words fail me. Either they are idiots or simply have no concept of the power of these things. We were 60 miles from the centre of Emily a few years ago and that was plenty close enough for me. The Rio may be hot and humid but there have never been records of a hurricane getting this far inland. I know what I'd rather take my chances with...and it's NOT the hurricane!
