Ivan on Wed.

( This is a report that I did Wed. am that didn't post right away, so I did another on on Thursday. )

If you watch CNN or the Weather Channel, you'll find Aruba, Bonaire, and Curacao mentioned; thanks to hurricane Ivan.

It looks like Ivan will pass by to the North of us, but we weren't so sure last night. The last major storm to hit here was in like the 1880's, so structures aren't constructed with hurricanes in mind.

We'll hole up in the heavy duty, double cement walled TWR studios if worst comes to worst, but we may escape with a lesser lashing. All the potted plants, porch furniture, and other easily movable objects are stashed away inside the shed or house.

The wind was totally still early this morning and then started to shift. It is really strange to see flags blowing the "wrong" way. Back before satellite images and the internet, when we didn't really know what was going on, I would have been out on my bike this morning, setting a new personal (wind assisted) best time for the ride back from Rincon!

We've been keeping an eye on Ivan down there too. Glad to see it's passed most of the islands without a direct hit.
