Re: East Coast Weather Bomb

Just did another check. About a foot of snow but really hard to say for sure because it's all so wind blown. Checked the lines and cleared some snow off of the shrink wrap. Looks to be close to high but still have room for the surge if we get it all the way in here.

Re: East Coast Weather Bomb

I predict today will be the end of the tarp covering my boat!

Re: East Coast Weather Bomb

Just checked Marine Traffic and saw winds south of Martha's Vineyard are over 50 knots. East of Cape Cod they are as high as 57 knots. Directly north of there they are at 50. ENE they are over 60. There's a few big ships out there, one a CG cutter, but that's pretty much it. Not a good day for a sail.

Re: East Coast Weather Bomb

NOAA is currently (10 AM EST) showing tidal surge of 4 feet in Boston and Fort Point, NH. If it continues it would put the next high at about 13 feet. Is that too high for marinas in that region?

Re: East Coast Weather Bomb

We can handle it here alright enough. Some pretty nasty coastal flooding for a lot of the seaside houses though. Gusts hit 74 here last night, 2'ish feet and still snowing.

Re: East Coast Weather Bomb

I think I've figured out how to post a video. If it works, it's a quick video of me checking on a few boats and my own dock lines and bumpers a little after midnight.

Re: East Coast Weather Bomb

Had a pretty uneventful blizzard so far (knock on wood). Here are a couple of photos. More on a blog post I just did: Blizzard of 2015 as a Liveaboard.

Good luck to all and fair winds,

Jesse

Re: East Coast Weather Bomb

Yeah I'm still at Captains Cove, might make it south within the next year or so now that we've picked up the Formosa.

We wound up getting hit fairly good. The antique wooden cat boat next to me snapped it's bow line as I was stepping of my boat. Caught the bow just before she swung into a piling. There's also a few 4+ ft snow drifts out there between the Marina and the parking lot that made shoveling out very interesting.
-4°F at the moment. Although the wind is starting to settle down.

Re: East Coast Weather Bomb

It was a non-event here in Rhode Island, compared to what we endured last winter. Didn't lose power at my place, like we did two years ago. Good bit of snow, though, ans still coming down

Re: East Coast Weather Bomb

Officially over. First real day off I've had in months. Too bad, the boats stocked to last at least another week or so.
