    Yeah it went OK. Apart from my almost coughing fit and vastly overestimated population of Chetumal :lol:

    The coughing wasn't that bad, Steve..just a couple of seconds although I'm sure it seemed like longer to you.

    And no one expects you to be an expert on Chetumal.

    I think you did great....the roving reporter has gone worldwild and I can say I knew you when you were just another English chap. :wink:

    Re: Chetumal

    Its a coastal town of 150,000 right next to the Belizean border. Very little tourism there. Quite a high proportion of wooden buildings, at least compared to Cancun.

    Doesnt look good.

    Are you still there? stupid question, but I wanted to know if the power went out. I know, I know, if you reply its because it has not

    If you look at the 11pm EST data at the NHC, we have a 0% chance of 50 knot winds reaching Cancun.

    20% chance of winds between 34 and 50 knots.

    What's we're getting now is probably as bad as it'll get for us.

    Considering what we got from Wilma and how long we got it for, this isn't going to do much damage to Cancun. The sun will be out tomorrow, and we can put everything back together and get on with it.

    Noticed a couple of brownouts early on, but nothing since.

    If the power does go out, I have batteries and a generator, so as long as the phone line or cable internet stays on, I'm here. :)

    And I'll be driving over!

    I dont want to speak too soon, but there's really not much happening. right now. Unless it a far off generator I think I can hear a helicopter out there.
