We are hunkered down in West Mobile, near 200 feet elevation, and it has been very mild so far. Mostly hoping they won't cut the power and kill the air conditioning.

Wifey B: Just made it back to our boat in NYC and turned tv on. Watching and thinking of all you guys there. Hopefully the impact is rather mild, but still know many will be affected adversely.

Best of luck to all you folks in the Biloxi area... I helped out after Katrina and it was heartbreaking to see all the beautiful broken and grounded vessels... Be safe and let us know if you need help...

I went to sleep. It went around us. Looks like Baldwin County, along the Florida line, took the worst of it. I'm hopeful that we all got lucky and all the cows are still in the fences.

Glad to report Gordon fizzled like a wet fire cracker! Here in Biloxi very little effects were felt, wind and some rain but that's it.

Spent the night at a Dog River marina, a few hundred feet west off Mobile Bay. 30+ knot’s of NE-SE wind and water level is ~2’ above normal tide, just over access road. No apparent damage to boats or marina.

I saw that Biloxi ordered a mandatory evacuation from marinas on Monday. Seems extreme for a TS. I assume they anchor or tie up in the bayous north of Biloxi. Any info on how they faired?

All of the MS marinas order evac for storms. The definition of storm seems pretty vague in a couple I've talked to. I know Gulfport fines you $1k/day if you don't leave.

The people over there I've talked to usually have groups that have been around for years and river locations scoped out. The group rafts up.

If you're a new guy, there may be a challenge finding a decent spot during these evacs.

Thankfully it was a non event over here, we were well over on the "good side". On Monday when the track was iffy I checked on GUMBO in her slip in Houma then went down to the fishing camp in Cocodrie and brought the Whaler Montauk home.
You can never be sure with just what these storms are going to do.
I hope every one else was fine!

On to Florence now and some rough seas off the East Coast. Looks like some 50' seas in the eye by Wednesday and still 25' along the NC and SC coasts. Right now some forecasts have 60 knot winds or so hitting the coasts. The forecasts are basically very uncertain now as to both force and direction. So it may stay off shore, or may approach NC/SC or may hit further north. We're thinking we may just hide out for a week or ten days on the Chesapeake. Our plans were to head on to Morehead City and then to Bermuda around the 13th, but those plans are pretty much shredded now.

A lot of folks down here (northern Gulf coast) are breathing a sigh of relief this morning. They seem to forget that, historically, the peak of Atlantic hurricane activity is September 10. We're just coming up on the middle of the bell curve. Start relaxing in late October.

Wifey B: If I was home, safe in South Florida I'd be relieved. Oh well, just slowing down and pulling inside tomorrow and taking it easy for the next ten days or so. Hoping she goes out to sea and not in to the coast.
