Found this too:


Dean is the first hurricane in the Atlantic. Dean continues to intensify as it approaches the Caribbean Sea. An Air Force recon aircraft has been flying through the center of Dean for much of the afternoon. It's been determined that Dean now has top sustained winds of 100 mph; a category 2 on the Saffir-Simpson scale. It continues to move quickly west toward the Lesser Antilles.


Dean is forecast to steadily intensify as it moves west, threatening the Lesser Antilles as early as tomorrow morning morning. Hurricane warnings and watches have been posted for parts of the Lesser Antilles.


From there, Dean should continue westward into the Caribbean and has the potential to reach "major" hurricane status by early Saturday. It may threaten Jamaica and the Cayman Islands during the latter half of the weekend and into Monday. Those vacationing and residents of the Yucatan Peninsula and Cozumel should also keep a concerned eye towards Dean.


It is too early to tell what, if any, impacts Dean will have on the United States but all along the Gulf Coast will want to keep monitoring Dean through the weekend into next week.


Heavy rain and thunderstorms have been persistent especially over the upper Texas Gulf Coast. The rain has spread inland into the central heart of the state as well. In some localized areas in the surrounding metros of both San Antonio and Houston have seen the rain gauge top out over 7 inches. The heaviest rain is thankfully, for the most part, avoiding the saturated city of Corpus Christi. In fact, much of south Texas is escaping Erin's heaviest rainfall.

Thanks Jamie! I know I've been keeping my eye on it too. I hope it turns into a depression...

Oh man! Any chance they're going to call off the weddings and he can get out of the area...?? On the news earlier they said that we should know more by Monday/Tuesday which direction it'll turn - TX/LA Coast or MX Coast...

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
