Re: Thunderstorm in Chesapeake Bay

Andre,

Will try to look you up and say hello. If you need a break from the painting, we're on C dock.

I heartily agree with JohnyQuest's advice to head for open water. If you can't get tied up or anchored, then give yourself lots of room to maneuver.

BTW - in the summer, the AM radio can give advance warning. Lightning crackles on the AM band. And if the Orioles are playing, listen to the game. Will give you about 45 mins warning from the time they roll out the tarp to when the squalls hit the Bay. Yes - personal experience on that one. :-)
