I thought someone hit the boat. Minor damage on the docks but all the boats in my marina are fine.

sail fast and eat well, dave

First the floods, now an earthquake and a hurricane coming. OMG the Mayans were right!

A little disconcerting but I'm more worried about what Irene's going to do.

I was at a farmers market in Philadelphia, but did not know about it until my daughter called. She lives on the 18th floor of a building in center city and did not know about until the building alarm speaker told the occupants not to evacuate, she looked outside and saw some windows broken on newer buildings.

Mayor Nutter told everyone to get back to work.

Shaking felt in Milwaukee, Wi as well. I thought I was having a medical issue as my chair was swaying and monitor was moving as well.

I was on the boat and didn't notice it. Thinking back, she might have rolled a little, but I took it for a wake. Almost immediately people texted me though. My wife felt it on the beach.

Here on the Northern Neck, a severe T-storm rolled through Sunday evening and the wireless internet tower took a direct lightning hit-no service until this morning (not served by cable or FIOS so wireless is the only option). Began focusing on Irene prep; then sitting in my 2nd floor office on Tuesday the floor started vibrating followed by the walls warping, the widow rattling and my chair rocking. Got outside like a shot. Now its back to thinking about Irene. A few are hauling their boats but I'm in a really good hurricane hole and will leave her at the dock with some extra lines and slack. Looking like the eye will track off the capes so unless things change, tide surge will be the main threat for us as with Isabel and Ernesto.
