Was busy yesterday unbuttoning the house. That was Quite a breeze alright!!
We are opposite the airport
reach west end, so caught the whole 24 hrs right in the face. When the eastern side of the eye wall passed over the western end of the island, we at the east end of the island got the hurricane
belt, probably from about 9pm Sunday to Daybreak Monday. Friends at Harbour Radio
told me consistent 75-80, many gusts 90+.
No damage at all to house. Surprisingly!! Bluestocking stretched out and broke new 7/16 and 3/8 chains at about 3am (97kts at that time). She made a run for God's compromise on hurricanes, the mangroves, where I lost
the bow rail and the starboard side of my new 1 grand Imron paint
job, 1 month old.
Measures Organization is amazing efficient, and today the airport
is 100% open, and the island is clean, if not pretty. Hibiscus will take a week to bloom.
No personal injuries that I have heard of, for which we are thankful.
Took a drive out to Abbotts Cliff today, and Trunk Island looks OK.
Had enough for this Year!!
