Emily and I enjoyed a wonderful creme brulea (sp?) on Martinique a few years ago. the best one i’ve ever eaten. beautiful little island. so sorry to see damage like this there. The Yucatan is now threatened and really just recovering from a devastating hit a few years ago. One of the repercussions and predictions of global warming is that hurricanes are only going to get stronger. They feed off of warm waters and right now Dean is a cat4 and expected to be a cat5 as it approaches the western Caribbean. 150+ mph wind. Mother Nature is really really pissed.
