sleepy ash

i am...

So as the Hurricane, currently a Category 4, makes it's way past each member of the Caribbean family one by one, it's approaching the Cayman Islands, at which point they expect it to be upgraded to a Category 5.  I'm not one for knowing much about the 'Category' system, however those on Grand Cayman (one of 3 of the Cayman Islands) they are taking this very seriously. As they should since Dean is expected to be more devastating than Ivan was in 2004. <-- thank for sharing that info Tammi. >.<

Why do I care enough to post something? Received this email from my sister-in-law less then an hour ago:

I don't think if i was married, I could just leave my husband behind, and on top of that my cat & parents. I don't care how much justifing you do, 'oh but it's for my child! blah blah blah' Who cares? She's your family right? Well so are the ones you are leaving behind. My cousin Perry is also on that island.  My brother called a few days ago, freaking out about it. He's never been throw anything like this before. Here in Canada, our big thing is snowstorms from hell, not Hurricanes. We do get tornadoes, but he's never seen one. My mom was hoping they'd stay at Tammi's parents house, since it survived Ivan in 2004, so at least that is something. I kinda hope Perry goes over there too.

So is now the time to start to worry? I mean i was pretty damn concerned for Sarah, Tammi's sister when Ivan hit Grenada, and then those prisoners were free running around with messiades (sword things, can't spell it), and bodies wash up from graves were floating by. @_@
