We are in Delaware City and were sitting in the cockpit with calm winds when I heard it coming. I told the Wife to get below and she was a bit slow about it so I was outside when it struck. The first blast of wind went from zip to maybe 40 knots in under 5 seconds. It was just a sharp edge of wind. After the initial blast I saw winds at 32 knots for a minute or two before it dropped off substantially to about 18.
It would have been real easy to have been knocked down.
