**5PM EDT UPDATE – Storm continues to track further away from Cayman**
As of 11am EDT today, Thu July 7th, Dennis has now taken a more Northerly track and is now forecast to pass at least 125 miles from Grand Cayman early morning tomorrow (Friday).
As such, Barefoot Man has been “uncancelled” for tonight’s performance and we are having a “Barefoot Extravaganza” party… I have a feeling “Cayman Hurricane” cocktails will be on the menu !
As always, we did take this very seriously, and Mr. Lawrence and his team worked very hard yesterday to prepare the resort and we did have a large team on call this morning should the storm have turned towards us.
Having said that, it didn’t, so this can be regarded as an excellent “dry run” for the 2005 season.
For anyone who wants to track the weather this Hurricane season, go straight to the US National Hurricane Center site here . This is the ONLY source of accurate information (they are the only people with Hurricane hunter aircraft), and note that they only update the information every six hours (11 and 5 am/pm EDT) and so watching the Tropical Updates every hour on the Weather Channel is just listening to idle speculation on what the next overfly will say.
Right, back to work, I’ll be checking the next update at 5pm EDT !
