What I'm afraid of is that the Army Corps of Engineers will do another dump of Lake water like they did in the last storm, and we'll end up with a super tide here on the river. At least the wind won't be opposing the tide this time.
My boat is down there in the St Lucie yard. Hope its ok.

Even though Miami and the Keys are getting it now, the worst is over here in Stuart. Skies are clearing and no rain for the last hour. I'm sure your boat is OK Beach Bum.

Yeah, everything is fine. The worst of Andrea was to the ESE of us. So dodged another bullet, and am thankful. When I was a kid, living in Pensacola, I used to look forward to hurricanes because of all the excitement. I do not look forward to them now. :-)

We were planning a run down the Pamlico River and across to Ocracoke Island yesterday, for the annual music festival. Needless to say, we're still tied up at home.

3.3" of rain since midnight, but winds only around 30 kts so far.

John that boat has been through an impressive list of storms. A little one like that wont bother it. It's tough! :-)

I always worry, though. As we both know, sometimes those little storms can suddenly strengthen unexpectedly (usually in the middle of the night!). The way that I have it tied in the slip it is kept pretty much in the middle. The downside of that is that there is not a lot of slack in the lines for a sudden rise in the river level. I've taken tide changes into account, but not a storm surge.

Anyway, all is well, and we get the dubious honor of having the first named storm of the season, for whatever that may be worth (probably not much).

BTW, I see that you have the Mainship on your profile now. Congrats!
