Well, here we were this afternoon, heading south right toward the brunt of Hurricane Matthew. We are on a road trip to Fort Lauderdale – to fly from there to Cuba. As you may know there is a major hurricane coming straight for Florida. As we were heading south most people were driving north and west.
Upon hearing early news of the impending hurricane we changed our flight to Cuba to Saturday because we thought Cuba would get slammed. Well, it didn’t (we are going N/NW). As I was planning to stay in the Lauderdale area we were being warned to stay away. I quickly got on the phone to Jet Blue and AGAIN changed my flight to tomorrow morning. We should get out before the storm hits the area here and we will arrive in Cuba after it’s well away from there.
We are headed out in the morning to Cuba with thanks to Jet Blue and their great flexibility (big surprise with FREE changes). You just never know what Mother Nature will do to travel plans.
Next time you travel, stay flexible and keep your fingers crossed.
