Wilma Part II

Yesterday, Wilma was predicted to make landfall on the Western Florida coast on Saturday morning, right about when our flight was expected to land.

Did you hear that? That's a big sigh of relief. Because at this point, when our flight lands, Wilma will have just turned the corner around the tip of Cuba. By the time our ship departs on Saturday afternoon, the storm will be headed toward the Florida Keys, which still presents a problem, which probably means we won't make it to Key West until later in the cruise (it's generally the first port of call).

Considering it could have been much worse, that's not so bad. It certainly will be interesting considering all our ports of call will have just recently encountered hurricane force winds. I'll be sure to take lots of pictures!
