After 5 wonderful days in the sun and the crystal clear waters of Grand Cayman, the wind started to blow a rather hard last night. I was sitting on the deck watching the waves crash against the pier and go flying up the sand. We woke up in the middle of the night to find we lost power. You could hear the wind going crazy all night.
This morning it was pouring, we had 4 inches of standing water in our jeep (dont worry its a rental). Chairs and palm branches were thrown all over the beach. Driving to the airport, the jeep kept trying to flip over on us. At some points on the road we were driving through a foot and a half of standing water.
Some how the plane was actually cleared for takeoff and we got the hell outta there (we were supposed to leave today anyway). Just looked at the radar - it looks like its headed right for you guys in Houston. Hope it doesnt get stronger, it was pretty rough allready.
