Sandy Watching

sandyIMG_1512

Not a lot going on here. The max wind we had last night was 27kts. Today it has been wet, colder and light winds in the 10-15kt range. The tides are pretty high right now. You can see the water covering the fixed dock on the boats ahead of us this morning. They aren’t expecting more than another foot or two when the storm gets closer. Glad we are tied to a floating dock with pilings that still have another 7 or 8 feet showing.

The weather guys are now expecting Sandy to make landfall north of us, closer to New York. Here’s a nice link to the continuous loop satellite imagery: http://www.goes.noaa.gov/HURRLOOPS/huirloop.html

That’s all for now – details at 11.

  1. Hey Paul & Chris,

    So glad the Frankenstorm looks like the main part will miss you! Hang on and enjoy the free boat wash. Tom is back in Calif helping his mom so no idea when or if we'll get ever out of Guatemala.
