Re: Halloween Hurricane

Approximately 2/3's of the moored boats in the Hudson off Nyack suffered mooring failures due to huge storm surge, wind and wave action. I had considered hauling our boat out but did not. Ironically, many of the boats that were hauled were toppled by the storm surge and winds. Amazingly, our boat survived on its mooring. I'm lucky to have only lost power for 5 days as many others are in much worse situations.

We are not used to being on the "wrong" side of a storm like this as they usually scoot well to our east. It has been a very difficult learning experience for the region.
