Not so Bad, so Far.
Front end of Sandy has blown out of the creek, the storm is still about 1500 miles wide so the back end will not arrive until later. (tomorrow maybe?)
The storm went right overhead a cat 1 hurricane merging with a big low pressure trough.
About ten inches of rain according to my rain gauge and no power since early Monday pm.
Much less wind than I expected, maybe about 75 in the gusts, but a steady 60 for about ten hours. Leaves were shredding from the trees and the house is now stuck all over with debris
Yes, the dock is still there, it’s just under two feet of water, about four feet of storm surge on top of the high tide. The blue dinghy cover blew to bits about 7:00 pm I was not inclined to try to rescue it in the dark.
The water will fall as the tide goes out today but high tide Wednesday morning is threatening another 4 foot surge so we may have higher water tomorrow than we had today, if that happens I may have to put to sea for a while.
Gotta run, the wood stove needs stoking.
