Subject: Re: Carribean vacation

You may want to reconsider your dates for the Caribbean as August is sometimes bad for hurricanes. In fact, I just read this week a travel article stating that the Hurricane Season begins June 1 and ends November 1 for the East Coast and the Caribbean.

However, I understand that Aruba is beyond the Hurricane Zone.

Two years ago we had to leave the NC coast, on the second day of a one week rental, on a balmy day due to the hurricane coming--and it did, and hit directly where we had been staying. It does happen.
