Yes, we just got home and forecasts the next few days of a lot of rain and ugly seas. I see 18' and even 21' in the Gulf on Sunday and Monday.

We were down south of Tampa for a few days, most recently at Anna Maria island. Decided to come back to Clearwater today to weather the storm here.


Everything I can tell, in the coastal areas it is more of a rain event than a wind event. I put some extra lines out and a couple more fenders.


Will see what develops. Seems awful early for this.

We are tied up, weathering the storm passing on the boat.


In Clearwater, will get the east side of the storm as it moves on up to the northern gulf coast.


Double lines, some extra fenders out.


Last forecast I saw said winds picking up in the early morning hours.
