Hatch Battening

Current forecast is that Hurricane Dean will hit Grand Cayman at Category 4 strength around 3am on Sunday night/early Monday morning. My best wishes to all who will be riding this out on-island.

You can follow along at the US National Hurricane Center

To allay any concerns about my physical safety, please be aware that I will be waiting out the storm in an extremely secure location.

On the plus side, I should have enough time before then to complete another long ride and perhaps do something of a brick.

Even with satellite connections, blogging may not resume until we're no longer under the weather.

That's it, shoehorn in some training! ;-)

Here's hoping that Dean will find a path that leaves people and property safe and sound in the many areas the storm is scheduled visit.

Good to hear that you will be safe. Also a pleasure to hear that you have modified your training schedule to fit around Hurricane Dean.

Hunker. My favorite tropical phrase.

I'm sure you're safe, so enjoy the experience as best you can.

you can bike into the wind before the eye passes, and be really optamistic knowing the wind will be at your back when the eye passes you!

Be safe man. I will keep watching the news and hope it somehow avoids your island.

Keep us posted if you can.
