Re: Watch out for Patricia

Feel kinda guilty sitting here safe eating supper with friends. My phone is streaming TWC....silent bunch of sailors here. We we discussing which is worse...day or night landfall. smh.
Not sure which is worse..dealing with a hurricane, or....a pissed off and frightened main coon cat....and trying to put him in the carrier. The mental image is both scary....and comical.

Re: Watch out for Patricia

Good to hear that Zee moved off the boat! Sounds like she did the right thing. I will be keeping my fingers crossed that her boat will be found still snuggly tied to its moorings in the morning and that the storm gods have shown a little mercy on the region. I was in Florida during Andrew. This one looks very similar -- compact and wicked. It's very concerning how quickly it built up to such enormous strength.

Re: Watch out for Patricia

She is in a nice and very expensive marina. I think most people would do the best you could tying up the boat and retreat to the top of the hill with a margarita, on the rocks as the blender will not be working.

It's a small world we all live in isn't it? Glad to hear Zee is okay even though I don't properly know her. Gnarly gnarly storm man.

Re: Watch out for Patricia

What speed was Patricia moving at?
.....with a short and fast buildup over the last 36hrs..... It's landfall might have been brutal , but hopefully fast in passing through a relatively small area , with not a lot of sustained sea build up.

Re: Watch out for Patricia

I am glad Zee decided on going to shore as she had made an interesting interpretive mistake: she mentioned a few times being "outside the cone of death". The cone is the predicted course of the hurricane with error factor... not a cone of destructive winds.
She may not have been in the direct path of the eye but was in the higher level destructive wind zone in the Dangerous Quadrant.

So glad to hear that you are safe, Zee. Glad the boat is ok. We can all exhale now.

Re: Watch out for Patricia

Zee, you made big trouble for me. Since last night I kept mentioning your name in low tones. "OMG, Poor Zee"...holy shizzle stick our poor Zee...u know the drizzle that falls from old men's mouths. Now she is questioning who u are and why I am so concerned about u...smile. So, Zee, u the bomb baby and no one no how know how to slaughter the English language like u can do and make it so much more interesting than blah blah blah.

Thank u for getting off the boat with kittie cat. That was a smart move and shows you're a deep intutitive. Those who live to run away get to live another day. Watch out for blowing shiit in the air. Many people become vegomatic in high winds. God bless u and can't wait for your reports.

Saw a great spy movie last night with Tom Hanks called "The Bridge of Spies", directed by Steven Spielberg. It is based on a true story of the prisoner exchange of Gary Powers, the Air Force pilot who was shot down in his spy plane at 70K feet and a Russian cold war spy caught in NYC. One of the great lines in the movie used several times made me think of you...and may or may not be applicable...Donovan, Tom Hanks, asks the Russian spy, then in jail, if he was nervous he would be sent to the electric chair for spying on usa soil...his reply, classic...."would it help?"

Mother nature will have her way and nothing can stop it. You did all u can and made some very good choices...smart smart woman.

Re: Watch out for Patricia

Bless your heart Zee. Deep sigh of relief and a thanks to the Higher Power. Right decision even if your home made it ok. I still pray for the rest of the area's folks and the clean up.
