Worse than Earl

Those of you who follow my blog may remember my trepidation waiting for Hurricane Earl to hit.  I, and the other cruisers here in St. Pierre nervously watched the hurricane track forecasts each day and made plans for the worst.  Well, it missed, but we still saw some strong winds.

Today however, Reboot is being hit by winds stronger than we encountered when Earl passed Nova Scotia and Newfoundland.  The highest wind gust reported so far is 46 knots.  The difference for me is that Reboot is now on the windward side of the dock, not the lee side.  I have already had two fenders blow out and the winds are predicted to continue at this level for another few hours.

I found the margarita mix and the tequila so it can't be all bad.
