Welcome to Curacao
We weren't worried when we planned this trip to the Caribbean during hurricane season. After all, the "ABC islands" -- Aruba, Bonaire, and Curacao -- are too far south to ever get hurricanes. Right? So... yesterday we flew into Curacao, and this is a satellite image from 7:30 this morning. The little squiggle that the yellow arrow is pointing to is Curacao. The big orange and angry red swirl is Hurricane Felix. Oh joy:
To be honest, we didn't get any hurricane force winds, only storm force, and it was decent enough to pass over mostly in the night. Some of the guests were pretty panicked, but we're Floridians; we slept through it. And, hey, things can only look up from here, right?
