Sigh of relief her in NJ. The track has been further east than predicted. The surfers came out in force Sat afternoon.

It is no longer a tropical storm. Cooler air in the center.

DIRT FREE is currently at anchor off Nyack NY, posting this from a Starbucks.

We are kind of stuck at the moment as we don't want to head into NY City with a hurricane threatening the harbour. We will not proceed down the Hudson til' this thing passes. Some ships, tugs and barges are already heading up the Hudson to escape the expected storm surge in the harbour and they are way bigger than us.

Once this passes we will be spending a couple of days in Liberty Landing Marina to visit Ellis Island and "the" statute. We may not have Wifi access again til' then.

If you are indeed right off the Nyack waterfront, myself, I'd sneak back up to the cove off Croton Point, a little better protection in there. Pretty, too.

Well we were at anchor and the house battery bank decided it wasn't happy. That's a definite no go when you have a fridge, deep freeze and ice maker. We went to the Park Service docks and rode it out. The breakers tripped there the night of the storm but at that point we had no choice but to stay. I hate being tied to a dock when things freshen but oh well. Doubled the lines facing the wind, put out fender boards and all was well. Really a minor storm as these things go but always something to learn (lost the life ring when it blew away)! The trucker who lost his life was crossing the three mile Alligator River bridge on Sat in the peak winds. I can't believe they didn't shut that bridge to truck traffic if not all vehicles.

Bye-bye Hermines. Thanks for not stopping here.

I know the spot but I hate to go backwards (even a few miles). It's been a little rolly at anchor in the later half of a rising tide but otherwise not bad at all.

Will double check the weather in the morning and if things are still stable, head down to Liberty Landing ($4.00/ft, ouch) for two days. Expensive but you have to do it once, right?

I think the reason that heart attack deaths are often listed as hurricane related deaths is that there are no emergency services available during a hurricane. People who normally would have been saved, die because they can't get help.

You often just don't know.

Fringe bands of Hermine now on Cape Cod (East Falmouth). North winds with gusts to 40mph today and tonight. Occasional horizontal sheets of rain. Our Rosborough is well secured at dock. Not enough rain to have impact on months-long drought, however.

We got jostled around pretty good late yesterday afternoon and into the night here in Mystic, Ct. It was a creaky night, nothing a couple of extra lines couldn't handle though.
Looks like were in for that for a couple of days.
