this storm and the next

We have some clouds, wind and a little rain from Jose this morning.  The Cat 1 hurricane is east and a little south of us.  I have been watching the wind speeds on the bay with this storm as the next storm, Hurricane Maria, could follow a similar path.  Right now sustained winds on the bay are in the low 30 mph range, gusting to 40.  

I'll continue to watch Jose as a precursor to Maria and will certain be looking at Maria's computer models.  I have no problem anchoring in a nice creek for a day or so to wait out the wind.  I have done it before in up to 55 mph winds.  But should Maria's model bring her closer to the Outer Banks or Chesapeake Bay than I may have to adjust plans.
