bluelilbegonia: The floating dock (left) is higher than the fixed dock (right). High tide is hiiiiiiiiiigh!
bluelilbegonia: Just wanted to share some awesome news. I got hired at a brand new distillery downtown. I will be a tasting guide and retail for the gift shop. Hyper local, ground floor, and right on the main drag downtown across from the Castillo!
bluelilbegonia: Pre storm update: the eastward bearing track is making me feel better and better. We stowed most of our topside stuff, and lashed the sail cover and sail tight to the boom. (Since we have no power propulsion we didn't want to take the sail completely down.) I also paddled over to the (now dead) neighbor's boat and stowed all the canvas and tarpage he had going on, as well as secured his hatches and companionway the best i could. We're watching the forecasts and models carefully. Depending on wind speed, we have yet to determine if we'll be aboard or ashore, but it's too early to make that call.
hagenduz: It's certainly taking it's time and making a lot of people uneasy. You certainly don't want to evacuate if you don't have to, and or move to a place that may be worse off than you are now depending on the track.
bluelilbegonia: Y'all....if you go in a (smallish) boat, wear a life vest. And don't boat/paddle/dinghy/whatever if you've been drinking. Law enforcement pulled a body out of the river this morning, and it turns out it was my neighbor. We hadn't seen him in a week (not unusual) but assortment he tried to paddle out to his boat last night and didn't make it. Beautifully calm evening. We don't know the details, but they don't matter much. Be safe and smart on the water everyone.

bluelilbegonia: Don't step into an open hatch because you're not paying attention. The bruises are from where my knee and toes caught the entire weight of my body against the side of the hatch opening, preventing me from falling completely through. Pretty sure the toe got broken, or very nearly so.
