Re: Halloween Hurricane

Wind gust of 90 reported last night at Bay Bridge. Storm center (not an "eye" because it wasn't officially a hurricane when it came ashore and mixed with the cold front according to NWS) stalled over Baltimore area last night at midnight. Had we been aboard, we would have watched the low pressure peg the dial on our barometer (938 mb?) Water here at our marina is to the stringers; or about 2-3 ft above normal. No major casualties; a couple of shredded biminis. We and our boat are chilly but ok. Conserving power.
