Good luck and Godspeed.

Tony: My sister Kathy just arrived back home in Lafayette, Louisiana, after having spent a wonderful cruise ship week in Mexico which included a stop in beautiful Cozemel on Wednesday (3 days ago). Kathy called to tell me how much she and her husband Nick enjoyed meeting you & visiting your impressive restaurant (new location) and especially wanted to thank you for your hospitality & conversation, of which included buying them beers. Kathy told me it seemed everyone in Cozemel knew you & your popular restaurant, so had no problem finding it. Meeting you really made their cruise vacation 'extra special' because it felt like meeting a personal friend of the family. Tony, Kathy & Nick can't stop talking about the wonderful time they had, & promised to return for your dinner show performance & opportunity to hear you sing on their next Cozemel trip & have convinced me to come along as well. Btw they really loved your CD. I'm really excited to receive my copy now too.

Ok Tony, Cat5 definitely sounds bad. Our prayers are all with you & your family. I trust that you've boarded up your new restaurant 'securely' and have evacuated to safety. Stay safe & keep us posted on developments.

Tony:

You will be first on my list of prayers tonight. Batten down the hatches and head north to gringoland if possible.

I will be checking on you during the next few days. Let us know if you need anything.

Looks like Cozumel took a direct hit and Cancun got nailed pretty hard as well. Hopefully, everyone is OK at both locations, but it will likely be a week before everyone gets power back. Tony's restaurant is just a block from the beach. With luck it was spared from any major damage.

Good luck my friend,

Gary

Still have not heard from Tony. Cozumel took a hard hit from the storm, and while Cancun was slammed as well the damage was not as severe according to news reports.

I'll try calling him on the phone today,

Gary, any news?

Re: OT...Sitting Here in Cozumel waiting for Emily - 07/20/05 05:43 AM

I called the restaurant last night, but there was no answer. I suspect the lines are still down and he has no electricity yet. I'll try again today.

According to the news from the spanish channel directly from Mexico is that they don't have water or electricity in those areas yet.

Galavision Tv Stations are reporting that authorities sent everybody to shelters including tourists, I think Tony is OK, but it won't hurt to pray for him and his family.

Wow, I didn't follow this forum with much attention in the last two weeks. So, I overlooked this thread here.

Tony, I hope you and your family are all well. We had some storm here in Germany too but what is a storm verified with a tornado?
We never have tornados or hurricans here in Germany. You Cozumels are all in my prayers!!!
