The picture above is of beautiful Cozumel a couple of months ago. Simply a breathtaking place. But it might not look so pretty in a couple of days.

I have a friend who has a very important job, and in the course of that job, he needs the very best weather information. Because he cares for our church family, he provides me insight as to which way hurricanes are pointing so we can be prepared, too.

Hurricane Dean should roar through Jamaica and the Cayman Islands today, but the last word has it slamming into Mexico’s Yucatan Peninsula between Cancun and Cozumel on Monday evening as a horrible Category 5 storm. From there, once it reemerges in the Gulf of Mexico, its current track has it rebuilding into a strong 3 or possibly a 4 before blasting the Brownsville, Texas / northern Mexico region on Wednesday night.

All subject to change, of course, but that’s what it looks like for now.

And if that isn’t enough, the experts believe that this hurricane season will last much longer than 2006. Last season’s ended in mid-September, but this one is expected to last until late-October to early-November.

Stay tuned this week. I know it will be a tragic week somewhere.
