Nope. It rained a little yesterday. And was cloudy all day yesterday and clearing today. All the kids got -- no joke -- a HURRICANE DAY off school yesterday. So naturally they ordered a pizza and played in the pool all day. I love this place.
I gather they didn't even get much on the northern side of the island, but I couldn't swear to it. I'm sure the waves there were impressive. Here, nothin. Kind of disappointing for our first tropical storm.

Not even close. They build with concrete here for a reason, you see -- it withstands hurricanes without having to be tied down like wooden buildings. And it's the concrete-and-tile construction that led us to choose Puerto Rico in the first place, over Florida I mean. That, and Puerto Rico's governor isn't a fascist son of a ... well, anyway, the construction there wasn't mold-free. So we came here. Politics had nothing to do with it.
Anyway, concrete means that even if we'd got hit, we'd (most likely) be fine. Alles klar.
