Hurricane Sandy

New Bern, NC

Hurricane Sandy is headed our way.  It's track is very uncertain, but it seems most likely that it will pass far enough east of New Bern that we will see no severe weather.   Even if it comes close, winds will be from the North and these docks are well sheltered behind nearby 4 story buildings that block North winds.

The good news isn't for everyone.   Look below at the forecast for Abacos, Bahamas.  Our hearts go out to those poor people there.  They'll get 72 hours of misery.
