Also of note: the local forecaster here said that as Wilma approaches and *if* the cold front comes in where it is supposed to, the windfield will expand well north of where it makes landfall; some TS force winds could be felt along with heavy batches of rain on Monday. Imbedded in those could be very strong T-storms, so our weather here is not going to be pleasant. Of course, it will be worse wherever it actually hits, but DO NOT let your guard down if you live further north than where it makes landfall. And for pete's sake, please do NOT go outside to see if you can "see the tornado coming". Do exactly what they have instructed you to do. Been though enough of them, believe me, most of the time you WILL KNOW if you've got one coming your way. My heart goes out to the people in Cozumel and Playa del Carmen...it is so beautiful there. Unfortunately, most of the people do not have adequate housing to survive such a beating as they are taking right now. I do know that at the hotel that I stayed at that some of the people that worked there also lived there, but I can't imagine what it must look like right now. Hopefully, their torture will end soon.
