Woke Up In A Cold Sweat

Zebulon, NC

I'm sure this has happened to you.  I woke up suddenly in a cold sweat.  Somehow when I was sleeping, I thought of a real life thing.  I remembered that when Libby and I stepped off Tarwathie and drove away, I forgot to move and secure the solar panels in a place secure in case of a hurricane (or even a severe thunderstorm for that matter.)   Damn.  That's a serious error.

What to do?  I could call the boatyard and ask them to do it.  I could call our friends Chris and June and ask them to do it.  But I need it done in a particular way.  I need the panels plugged in and operating (we leave the refrigeration running all summer or else the collant leaks away.)   I also need the panels located out of the direct force of the wind, and very securly tied against winds up to 100 mph.

So here is the plan.  Dave has Wednesday and Thursday off from work.  he and I will drive down to Green Cove Springs and take care of it.  We'll also have fun travelling together.  Hopefully, we could manage to get in a side trip to the battleship North Carolina.
