So, this 'storm' doesn't seem real bad to Jenny or me. We are pretty used to mid-west tornados and thunderstorms that wreak some real havoc. On the other hand, being on the water makes things a bit different. While it hasn't rained a whole ton, nor has there been a massive lightning show, there has been a whole lot of wind. Last night the building just up the road from us clocked a couple gusts at around 55-57 mph. That's blowing pretty good. Well, that, combined with the strain of extra high tides from the storm surge has certainly caused some troubles for our poor old docks here.
The photos are from about halfway down d-dock. See dockplan here. That is the worst break so far, but word has it that a few other small breaks have happened as well. Luckily there is a good crew of workers here and they were on top of things all night long. Things are quickly being patched up and reinforced and soon all will be back to normal.
This is fun!!
