All seems fairly calm right now.

Was over at Island Supermarket doing some shopping and everyone seemed not
much disturbed by the fact that a hurricane is immediately in front of us.

Most homes and businesses covered windows with plywood already and most are
closed by now too.

The roads have become real bad but this is not something unusual of course.

The football field is about half flooded now and this was the same case when
Mitch visited.

The beaches have not been affected much I confess and this is due to the
fact that the winds are coming from the northwest. If there is a shift in
the wind direction, I can see the potential for damaged beach, dive shops
and piers.

Still blowin like hell out of w nw
