Pressure at 939mb. Winds at 90mph. Traveling at 28mph. And they say there is so much power in the storm it will take hours, even 10's of hours, before it begins to lose strength once it makes landfall. This storm is a terror!
Like
Juggernaught. Winds outside the boat are 45 steady gust hit 63 on tridata wind instrument, driving rain sideways, Haleakula bouncing around in slip. Just had a nice bowl f homemade chili after walking around the docks, which took a huge effort , my Gill folulies are great, nice and dry inside, took my snorkel mask and put it on, as well as boots,

Got the picture......Halloween early.......trick or treat...
