Precautionary. It was a good 15 sec shake. Some researchers suggests that there could be a big one for the East Coast. Started slow then had a couple of good bumps. We're not used to them around here...

I felt it sitting in my house/office in Wilmington NC for about 5 seconds. I have never felt an earthquake before and was trying to figure out what was going on.

If a 5.3 freaks you out, don't ever visit California.

I was laying over in Tokyo 3 weeks after that big one they had up north of there back in March. About every 3-5 hours there was a pretty good aftershock and jolt. They build for it over there so our hotel just kind of rocked gently, back and forth...at first I thought I'd had too much Soporo, but then I realized what was going on.

Hurricanes and Earthquakes, it's all good fun until someone gets hurt...OR...maybe it's the end of Days!

I thought that wasn't supposed to happen until...2012 ??

Looks like I'll be heading to Charleston to get the sailboat storm ready. Bimini down, sails off, double fenders and spring lines.
Hmm, did I remember to pay the insurance?

We gotta get through October of this year first. The nut bag in Oakland pushed his date until then.

Next up is End of Days December 21, 2012. It might be a good excuse to go easy on Christmas presents next year.

Do you think this hurricane will have enough wind to make an AMF Sunfish move at a moderate speed? Or should I wait for a Cat 5 wind before taking out the Sunfish?

It's looking worse for Hattaras..the track takes the storm inland enough around the cape that Hattaras would be on the east side of the storm and suffer the worst the ocean can throw at it.

Then...New York stands in the path of what's predicted to still have enough strength to be classified as a Category 1 hurricane by that time...not good!

Fingers crossed for a big rightie and this thing blowing out to sea!

Probably but the dagger will cavitate and you'll loose all control.

I dropped my mast and added another anchor. Not much here. We had one wave so far. It is just about even with us now and we had high tide a little over an hour ago.

This thing is huge, I did not think we would get much from it 110 miles inland of Charleston, but its size has made it bigger than once expected. Latest radar image on wunderground.com

Don't you guys HATE the national media? Saw one report this morning, the guy was standing in the surf (I think it looked normal) trying to make is seem worse than it was at the time. The storm wasn't going to get there for a couple of days yet. Just like when we get storms here in LA, you can't get REAL info from those guys. Really chaps me how they handle it.

Keeping my fingers crossed that Hyannis Yacht Club doesn't get flooded! We have moon tides at the same time Irene is going to hit us.
They just spent 2 million on rennovations to the first floor!
