Tuesday morning update, Hurricane Sandy
Well we’ve survived another hurricane. Everything is fine. The winds are down to 5 kts., the water is below the docks, and it is cold. We will be restoring things back to normal over the course of the day
Wind gusts over 50 kts. Winds have shifted and are coming out of the west as Sandy’s winds continue to back. We are turning power back on because water has receded. Unfortunately, a few boats have sustained some damage and their owners have been contacted. Now thinking about seminar in the spring on how to secure your boat for a storm!!!
Wind increasing to 40kts+ inside the marina, but tide starting to recede on the way to low tide. All boats are still safe. Thanks to all the slip holders who took the time to prepare their boats properly. More photos to come when it is safe. Just fyi, it is Jim Rogers who is our intrepid dock walker. He’s out walking the docks in 4″ of water to check on conditions. Lisa can’t get off of her boat now, so she is cozy and cooking cranberry muffins.:) Power was shut off to the docks this morning, so Jim went to Hurds and bought Lisa a propane heater so she could stay warm while on her boat. Thanks Jim. And thanks to everyone’s well wishes.
Just wanted to let you all know that Jim and I are here and watching your boats and all the docks. The winds are blowing 20 – 25 knots (but that depends on who you ask!).
We are about at high tide and high it is! Jim just shut power off on E-Dock as it is now slightly over the dock. The rest of the docks have probably 8 inches before the water will crest over it. So far the only loss is a dog water bowl and water jug. Let’s hope it stays that way. This is just a quick note to let you all know that things are good here. You have two pro’s here doing all that we can. Stay tuned, as long as we have power, we will stay in touch.
