      We had been tracking it, and when we woke in the morning we saw that it was headed for us, so we went into emergency mode. The resort took all of the outside furniture and moved it in or tied it down, the beach market which was next to out resort had packed the whole thing up the day before, and what couldn't be packed up they weighed down with sand bags. We got up and moved all of our children into our room (my teens had their own room) then we stalked up on water and we got together food from the buffets in case we were unable to leave our rooms. We got extra blankets, and sheets and then we waited. The storm was actually pretty cool, I have never seen anything like it. It was the worst storm I have been in but luckily it didn't hit us head on, in Puerto Plata it was really bad. We waited it out and then 4 hours later it was hot and so still it was earie, not a breeze to be felt. It made leaving difficult, all the flights had been grounded so when we got to the airport it was chaos. We were also on the plane to Toronto that had all that cocaine that was found in a bag, it was a crazy way to end our 2 week vacation:) Up til Dean, our weather was perfect, we had one really bad storm one evening, thunder/lightening, which was beautiful, but scared Liam, we could feel the thunder on the ground. I will be travelling again in August (actually this year to Jamaica), so far it was one of my favourite times of year to go away in, even with Dean hitting us:)
