Hopefully this sucker either dies over the mountains or makes the projected turn North over the weekend. My happy arse is supposed to be on a Cancun beach, drink in hand a week from Friday!

Cancun is seldom bothered by hurricanes. I know gulf and all but storms tend to move north west or north east. Cancun is south west of the region. They get them but not often if they do they come straight in from the east.

Matthew is forecast to move west north west towards Florida and the eastern seaboard. Still long way out but I wouldn't worry too much if I were you.

I'd worry more about crime in Cancun outside the resort area.

I noticed that this one could impact florida.

Though we have a stalled cold front over us. I wonder how strong it will be.

Here's the sattellite loop to keep an eye on.

Thanks. I'm not worried about the storm so far. I agree the models all seem to indicate a Northern turn to the storm this weekend.

We go to Cancun/Mayan Riviera every year. No worries about any crime. We travel all over the area in taxis, collectivos (little vans that will pick you up on the side of the highway) etc. depending on where we are headed that day.

See that's perspective for you. You go and you've never had a problem and the one person I knew who went there got robbed..

I'm glad you've never had any problems.🌴🌴 Have a great time. 🐚🐚Down a shot of tequila for me. 🍹🍹

They kept saying it wouldn't be a Hurricane until Friday, but even yesterday, I just can't buy that. I'm betting it's one by the 2pm update at this point. I think it will be a big one. Hopefully, it will miss us as they project, but that's a really sharp turn they expect. Strong storms simply aren't usually so drastically turned.

Luckily, we had our fairly regular power outage recently (when a critter gets fried in our transformer)...so we kind of did a dry run for a long term power outage (and learned people don't know how to put crap back where it goes...lol)... So we're more prepared now.

LOL, that's the very first thing in the cart during preparation. Priorities you know.

Mathew is a category 4 hurricane now and the track is very close to inundating half of Florida and possibly a second landfall further north. This won't be a false flag event too many witnesses.

My guess would be if it doesnt go out to the east coast and miss Florida it's coming straight up, a very uneducated guess but I am not the luckiest person in the world and I reside here now so waiting for murphys law to come along. Even if it does skirt to the east coast of Florida its one hell of a monster and there will be plenty of liquid sunshine next week. The baby cane that came through last month gave us a dry run with a 24hr power outage so we have all our ducks in a row now, just waiting.

And now strong possibility a cat 5 upgrade in the near future. Not good for wherever it hits

I'm worried about the Islands before it even gets to the US mainland.....the Caymans, Haiti, Cuba....Jamaica....who will likely get hit head on with a Cat4 or Cat5.
Yikes!!!!

For those who are interested.....WU has some good storm coverage....especially the blogs on the right side of the page by Dr. Jeff Masters.

Watching and praying for the area in direct line this weekend into next week .. Then start Watching and charting for our area later ...

Must remember to hit liquor store this week .. And the store for bread (yes it's true) and junk food ... Must have junk food for hurricane ... Load a few books on iPad and kindle and be sure vehicles have gas ... Pretty much have everything else all the time .. And hit bank for cash .. And start at least thinking about what prep to be done to house and yard ..

Guy was supposed to come hook up gas line for generator but the last storm put him off .. Oh well won't be first one we don't have it but I sure hope it's the last ..
