Goodbye Irene, Hello Katia ?

Everything worked out great for Annapolis, as the hurricane Irene's track was ofshore and the expected storm surge came at low tide with a west wind to cancel everything out for us. The water never even came up to the top of the docks and the highest wind we saw was 64 mph.  The marina here in Annapolis just got power 54 hours after the hurricane ended. We had no problems in the boat as we have solar and wind power with a Honda generator backup if the solar and wind don't keep up with our electrical demands. We have all of the extra dock lines removed, the dingy back inflated and hanging on the davits, and all our storm gear stowed. Now we have to worry where the next tropical storm,  Katia tracks.
