After a long and arduous training period; comprised of choosing which post about the weather to respond to, which to leave to others, and finally capped-off with an in-depth study of the Magic 8 Ball's algorithms to figure out just how it worked; I felt in the best weather prognosticating condition of my life for this trip to Grand Cayman.
For the following, I intend to keep a running journal of my experiences battling any bad weather encroaching upon Grand Cayman in the name of all those vacationers who deserve a perfect weather getaway. cayCompass weather is the referee for the brawl and its forecasts will determine the winner.
PRE-FIGHT ANTICS: Saturday - With a shopping list a mile long for condo supplies, I was not yet in a position to start the battle. Too much running around, eating Sunshine Grill tacos, returning to the airport to pick up a bag we forgot (duh) and "fixing up" the condo; the weather would have kicked my butt, so better to just posture without jumping straight into the ring. The forecast called for "Periods of sun, a shower or Thunderstorm in the p.m". Didn't see any rain n the PM, but it looked overcast. So far so good.
