Do you think this storm was named after that famous dog, RINA-TIN-TIN?

Be safe all.

Generally the ferries continue to run until at least 24 hours before the storm is scheduled to hit. So you'll be fine.

Keep those ferries running until tomorrow afternoon. It's a long swim with luggage.

I really don't see why the people ferry would be shutdown already. The weather still doesn't look that bad on Cozumel. I can understand the car ferry moving on to safer waters. I guess I will find out.

I sure hope Mayair is flying and only a fool would risk not flying hoping for a ferry. I tried to post earlier that ferry service often shuts down 48 hours ahead of an expected arrival. This has intensified significantly and quickly. The second fastest storm to go from reaching tropical depression status and then reaching hurricane force within 21 hours.

I thought it was a surprisingly strong norte blowing tonight. What I saw and felt, I wouldn't have wanted to be on that last ferry that left at 7:00PM. I have ridden in worse conditions.

Steve, if you don't fly, you could be five days stuck in Playa and I assume, like here, the dry laws will go into effect shortly ending all alcohol sales. I'd go directly to a Lomas Travel rep outside your terminal. If Mayair is flying and has space, $48 dollars and a beautiful 20 minute flight sure beats riding the bus, wishing, hoping and most likely praying too. I'd hate to be stuck in Playa when I could be in Cozumel. If you are going to hurricane, this is the best place to be.

My guess the first truck ferry might not run until Monday. I stocked up on water and gas on Friday. I have the freezer full of ice trays making extra ice. I've already brought in most of the outside plants and did my yard preparations this afternoon. A couple hours in the morning and I'm done.

Good luck all. You may be a bit inconvenienced. They normally turn the electricity off when hurricane force winds first hit. I feel 100% confident in my personal safety and that of my neighbors. Never a more resourceful or more resilient people, the best possible place and people to ride out the storm. I'd be scared to death facing this if I was in Florida. No place to run to short of Ohio.

The back to back storms of Opal and then Roxanne made a strong impression upon me. I watch very closely any activity from that region around this time and try to stay fully prepared. The bakery has promised me a fresh supply of brownies by the afternoon, my last critical storm supply item needed.

I hope people have purchased any alcohol or mood management substances they may anticipate wanting. Dori stays open, but they don't have much, but expect the alcohol sales to be cut off soon if not already. AND MAKE SURE YOU HAVE SUFFICIENT CASH! ATMs will run out of money and won't function without power.

We are at yellow alert this morning, so it's time to review your preparations, fill in the gaps and be ready to hunker down. Buena suerte a todos.
