Oh… I see how it is..

October 24, 2012 by Last Star blog

So we finally shed the truck.  Load up on Pringles and tonic water and now there’s a storm? A dang hurricane this late in October and another waiting in the wings named Tony?  Well I guess we’ll sit here a few days in Adams Creek NC and see what Sandy wants to do.  It’s 2:00 PM and we’re done for the day.  This is after pushing off at 11:00.  We needed a change of scenery and with no car the previous Marina was pretty isolated.  This early stop will permit some catching up on little things in the boat.

Maybe I’ll rig the windsurfer and get some small craft advisory windsurfing in if the storm comes close–the best kind. It’s about 85 degrees here today so no wet-suit required in these conditions.

Solar panel has batteries maxed out, refrigerator is chilling beer and icecubes and Coldplay is singing “Paradise” on the radio.  Not bad for a hurricane watch!

 

As always leave a comment or a question if you have one.

    Funny how I was just checking in to see what you’re plans were for the hurricane. No ditching Patricia and hurrevac’ing these days. From the sounds of it you guys are well prepared to weather the storm. .. .. your picture makes look pretty scary.

      Early still, will watch NOAA, have two plans. One is going south if Sandy is good. The other is retrograde to previous position and wait a week before it all clears. There’s a strong Norther coming and that could really cause some fireworks. We’ll see.
