Hello my friend. I'm just saying that so far i dont see any signs...
I always go overboard in this arena. I just want everyone to be prepared.
I believe the storm was in 1932, DG, and it killed 120+ people here in the Cayman Islands and went on to kill another 3200 in Cuba. It hit on
November 8, a date that was considered past the hurricane season at that time. It was a bad one, and is still taked about in both countries.
There are a fair amount of people like your papa who still carry the scars of that storm. It changed a lot of lives.
November 8, last year, the anniversary of the Storm of '32, I was up all night, as I usually am in storm times, on the internet, watching Paloma.
It took a sharp turn and intensified. I started calling people, and I think most people were a tad tweaked off to be awakened at 2:30 a.m. It
really kicked our butts, although thankfully, nobody was killed.
Maybe we really can't do anything about the storms after we've boarded/shuttered up and are tucked in. Myself, I always want to be awake and have
at least pants and shoes on
you just never know.
Be safe m'friend. Holler if you need anything.
