I knew it was tempting fate to plan a trip to Cancun's water park, Wet 'n Wild for today. Last time we planned going there, we got hit with Hurricane Wilma! And now we are in the midst of TS Arthur. Our first named storm of the season. A bit early too. That is not a good sign!
Here's what the radar was showing us at 9 AM today.
Isla Mujeres is way at the top, covered in blue. That circle just south of us is Cozumel. Every blogger I know from around here is getting hit. With the exception of maybe Theresa in Merida. We needed the rain badly, but not like this! Even CNN did a piece about the weather in Cancun and mentioned Isla Mujeres. Told us to watch for major flooding. Nice.
It comes in waves, this storm does. (yikes, now I'm sounding like Yoda for some reason!) There was a bit of a respite about 15 minutes ago and I ran outside to get these shots. Notice that the military is still patroling. I wouldn't want to go way out there today to lay a wreath on the water.
It cleared off, or tried to clear off, a bit last night just as the sun was setting. It always makes for some beautiful skies when that happens. We even had a rainbow. So enjoy these pictures and be glad you are not here today.
