Re: Hurricane Sandy: How did you do?

"Downeast" escaped with a strong easterly gale. My view out of Seal Harbor, into Eastern Way, on Monday, was of two Coast Guard 42 footers training in breaking seas that obscured them occasionally. I moved TD to Northeast Harbor Sunday afternoon and am tied to a moored float there now. Haul out on Friday. A month early this year. They took all the dinghy docks out for the storm.

It is painful to see the conditions suffered by those in the direct path of the storm. Wishing you all the best from Mount Desert Island.
