I was really hoping for a nice sail this coming weekend. The seasons are changing. Cool, dry air is moving in from the north. The photo above is from about this time last year. Blue skies and white clouds, and a nice breeze out of the north.
Instead we are all watching Irene. It looks like the entire East Coast is going to feel the effects of this storm. A friend that knows a lot about weather compared this storm to Hurricane Donna which battered its way up the Atlantic coast in 1960. That storm is still considered one of the top ten mostly costly storms to the US.
We are a few days out. We'll see what happens.
