There is currently a storm of which most of my friends and the sailing community in general is aware. Hurricane Florence is expected to collide with North Carolina in the next couple days. Unfortunately Rover seems to be right in the middle of the predicted path and there is nothing we can really do about it that hasn't already been done. Sails and canvas were removed and extra dock lines were added when I left her several months ago. The caretaker we hired has added additional lines and fenders and done everything else possible to make her as safe as can be for the impending storm. The marina, and her location within the marina, are about as good as anyone can hope for anywhere in the area. At this point, all we can do now is wait and see what happens. My concern regarding this storm is more for the many friends I have made that will be impacted far worse than us by Florence.
