Hurricane Dean and Our Beloved Mexico

Aug 20, 2007

Well, I suppose we're lucky that we haven't made it to Mexico yet. Hurricane Dean is heading towards Chetumal, which is south of where we would be in Playa del Carmen. I'm scheduled to go to Cozumel over Labor Day weekend, so we will be in the loop with the dive shop. Roberta has promised to send out an email with the state of things once the sun comes out again. I would imagine that as long as the hotel and dive shop are still standing we will be there. Even if the hurricane churns up the sand and messes with the reef, I think we'll all still be out to show Roberta and our favorite dive masters and shop people some love.

Here's a map of the storm's trajectory with a little mark showing where Playa del Carmen is.
