Felix is officially our first...

Well, Zach got his wish! We lived through our first category 1 hurricane. Hurricane Felix was just supposed to be a tropical storm, but it ended up gaining speed by the time it got to Grenada and just got worse. When Zach was going to bed at about 4am he noticed that the wind was getting a little crazy. At about 4:30am I woke up out of a dead sleep and was wondering what was going on. I turned to Zach and noticed that he was awake and asked him if he was sure that this was supposed to be just a storm and he reassured me it was. Well he was wrong. I could not believe how crazy those winds were, we found out today that they hit about 75miles and hour. Needless to say, I was freaked right out. Walking around today we noticed a lot of downed trees and debris. It was weird to think that we'd just lived through a hurricane, I think that we are still in shock... and Zach is happy beyond belief!!

Way to go you guys! Another great story to add to your "Life in Grenada" collection. Jen, I would have been freaked too...good thing your husband was happy b/c that means he was calm. If you were both freaking out...not so calm. :o)
