Tropical Storm Irene

Yep, we're still here.  Tropical Storm Irene passed through St Croix last night and we did just fine. Nobody got too up close and personal like last year, either :)

Yesterday afternoon wasn't too bad wind-wise and then everything got quiet as we were now in the eye of the storm.

We took advantage of the lack of wind and rain and appreciated a glass of Cruzan Black Strap rum out in the cockpit. We were joined by Willow and Buffy who also enjoyed the respite.

After the eye passed, the storm became much more intense. Very windy and horizontal rain. I actually slept better than I had in recent nights!

Local radio told us that St Croix suffered 100% power outage.  Our AT&T cellular service is still down.

The cats were very playful this morning. Must be the result of the reverse pressure drop.

So, I'd just like to say... Good night, Irene!

So It Goes...
