Hurricane Irene, a set on Flickr.
I stepped outside for a quick walk and took some additional photos.
Everyone seems to be pretty hunkered down at this point. The wind has picked up a bit, probably gusting at about 35 mph now. Rain is steady and getting slightly heavier.
No real problems to report in the marina at the moment. I stopped in at a neighbor’s for an incredible bowl of chili! Now, back on the boat and getting used to the rocking.
Irene will probably disturb our sleep a bit tonight as sustained winds are supposed to reach 40mph late this evening and early into tomorrow. All the more reason for hurricane parties to run a little later!
