We think we have a basic plan for making it down the Chesapeake. We even plan on doing some of the Albemarle Loop. Of course, Hermine (just upgraded from a TS to an H) also seems to be planning to visit everything we will on our way south. So, for now we will sit here in what we hope will be a bit safer location to wait out the storm.
The forecast "cone" seems to change a bit as we go, but so far Baltimore seems to be outside of it. The worst of the forecasts are showing winds no more than 30 knots or so in the area. We have doubled up on dock lines, added extra chafe protection, and removed most loose items from the cockpit. Tomorrow is supposed to be the calm before the storm, so we will continue to watch the forecasts and make appropriate preparations.
To all our friends and acquaintances in the path of Hermine, we hope you stay safe and secure.
