My friend Tori took these beautiful photos of Hurricane Rina rolling into Cancun’s Hotel Zone. Kind of disappointed to be stuck in the office right now!

    They are beautiful, but it’s probably best that you’re inside! Be careful!

      No worries, they’re not my photos 🙂 They’re from a friend in the Hotel Zone. At any rate, these are just some of the outer clouds from the hurricane. Not expecting actual hurricane-like weather until tomorrow.

    Gorgeous. I love a good storm, though I hate the damage.

    I remember being on the beach B4 Wilma hit. What a sight .. such strong winds and the waves .. I love a storm, but not a hurricane!

      Speaking of waves, a lot of locals have been doing some surfing! (as you know, we usually don’t have big enough waves in Cancun)

    Wow, they don’t look so bad off the phone. This up and down weather is nuts…sunny and hot one sec…back to downpour and wind the next and then back again. A part of me feels this is gonna be much like the storm two weeks ago.

      They look great for phone pics! Thanks again.

      I’m reminded a lot of the previous storm, too, but not quite that strong yet.

    Look at those colors! I’m that way with storms too. Sometimes hunkering down sounds like fun. Until I can’t shower…

    That’s it, huh? Anti-climactic. It’s funny- when we brace ourselves for these natural catastrophes and they don’t happen, we feel cheated and disappointed. I’m sure if we were on the end that Bangkok is facing right now (flooding started around the same time as your hurricane), we’d all feel differently. But I get to feeling the same to. We want the adventure.
