Thanks for all the well-wishes. We came through Hurricane Nate just fine even though the eye passed directly over the suburban ponderosa. Lost power for about nine hours and some of the plants have seen better days but had a chance to fire up the genny and light some survival candles (recipe for the latter, here).
Now all is good and we are moving forward. Should return to the regularly scheduled programming with Warship Wednesday tomorrow.
Did find this really sweet Irwin 44 washed up on the beach down the road from me, however. Talk about flotsam.
