Lady in Red – Wilma

“Gossip is just news running ahead of itself in a red satin dress.” Liz Smith

I’ve got a sneaky feeling that some of the sensational tendencies of the world media has everyone wondering ‘Did Cayman sustain a lot of damage from Hurricane Wilma?’.

The good news is that Wilma missed us by a considerable distance and at worst, it was like a wet, blustery fall day in New England. Of course Hurricane Season has us on alert at the slightest sniff of a storm – but we don’t worry – we stay prepared.

We should mention for you news hounds that there has been some flooding in the less protected areas of the island – but this has no impact on The Reef as we’re standing high and proud here on the East End.

It’s not a great story (I know that never stopped us before) but we’re all still here at The Reef getting on with life as usual.

Thanks everyone for your concern and kind thoughts – now please stop worrying – we’re here to smooth out furrowed brows, not to create them!

    Thanks for the update – you’re right about the media, they were saying Cayman was being evacuated on our local news at the same time that I was reading various island sites that said it was windy, raining and a storm surge on the west side of the island but nothing more.

    Thanks again!
