My trip is next week. As such, there has been a lot of running around, getting last minute items I just can’t possibly live without (that I could almost surely live without). I’ve also been looking at that 10 Day forecast with increasing regularity.
The forecast has been both good and bad and in-between and in my experience the 10 day forecast is about as accurate as earthquake prediction (in that, it isn’t).
The base truth is that the weather is a crap shoot. It could be glorious and it could be horrible and it is likely to be a bit of both because it is the Bahamas and it is February.
What is more important than the weather, in terms of a trip being a success or not, is likely the attitude I bring to the trip. If a day of rain or cloud is going to ruin the trip I stand a great chance of having the trip ruined. If I look at the thing as a grand adventure and prepare myself for nothing more than drinking rum and Kalik and looking at the water, well… maybe low expectations really is the key to happiness.
So… I’m ready, mentally, regardless of the forecast or even the actual weather. It will be an adventure.
(I’ll still look at the forecast a few more times though)
