Saturday night there was an official cyclone warning issued for all islands around Fiji. We’ve been watching the satellite and wind patterns for the last few days. So today we spent the morning boarding up the windows on each bungalow and moved the two boats to a mangrove patch that is very sheltered from the elements.
I’m actually excited and hope a see the real deal. Living in Dallas, I only remember one time when there was a tornado and I went out the front door and could see the sky turn green from the dirt floating around the air. All we see here is plenty rain which is good for the garden as it has been very very very dry and hot the last few weeks. This storm should ramp up tonight, Monday night, and then big time Tuesday morning.
Just to clarify the last post, Sean is not able to make it out to Fiji with Chris this go around. Scheduling with American Airlines apparently requires you to have all signatures from the Joint Chiefs of Staff as well as majority vote in the House and Senate before they let you use your frequent flier miles.
