Fay, Gustav, Hanna, Ike, Josephine..............
Kinda reminds me of the '04 season.
I don't envy you guys down there, not during Hurricane season.

Hasn't there been a drought down there for awhile now?

Just Mother Nature catching up and cooling global warming.

God I hope this thing....things I should say.. misse us. My boat is on a mooring just off the city marina in Fernandian. The mooring held strong in Fay, but this one makes me nervous. I think I'm going to go out and throw out a few anchors and attach them to the mooring ball and then run a few more lines up to the boat. Duno what more I can do.
The tide does appear to be on our side however. Dead low is at 6:50AM and the storm is supposed to hit AM on Friday. Those boats way up in the marsh and and the new sunken one from Fay give me the heebe-jeebies. Kinda makes me sick to my stomach thinking of mine being up there.
Lets hope for the best.

My boat is right on Charleston at St Barts (city marina), they offered to haul it up-river and keep in on the ground. Guys, this is my first hurricane, so, how is that ? is it safer on ground ? is it a common procedure to haul it ?

I laugh when people say, "I couldn't live in California, with all the earthquakes." When was the last time anybody died, had serious property damage, had to be evacuated, had to call out the National Guard etc., etc. because of an earthquake in California? 20 years ago? But that stuff happens every single year on a large scale in much of the rest of the country, due to severe weather.
