Bye Bye Dolly

Tropical Storm Dolly was a non-event here in Cancun, a few scattered showers but no wind to speak of. It's still cloudy and raining occasionally, but the storm has now moved over the Gulf of Mexico so things should clear up in the next day I suspect. People on the more northern coasts of Mexico and in Texas may feel Dolly's influence, the NHC reports that parts of the Mexican coast are on hurricane watch and Texas is under a tropical storm watch.

You can see by the satellite that we are still feeling the effects of Dolly but the worst has definitely passed.

And since I am a HUGE musical fan and this storm had such a great name, I leave you with the fabulous Barbra Streisand singing "So Long Dearie" from "Hello Dolly". Come on, watch it, you know you can't resist!

Heather- Thanks, I do love my musicals and this storm had a great name!

Manolo- Yep, I think Miss Dolly's skirts reached all the way over to you. But hey, you are not so far away, come on, a little Cancun jaunt shouldn't be too hard, teehee!

My3ros- Aww, no need to worry about us, we're all good! We've survived the worst, nothing can be harder than Wilma was, everything from her on out is buttah. Hope Vegas was good to you!

IslaGringo- Ok, now THAT I would have liked to have seen! Such a fun play, my dad was in a version quite recently (he does at least two musicals a year, gotta love him!)
