Waiting for Earl



But mostly, it looks like we get off light this time - I've been watching the forecast all week & there were times when the predictions involved gusts up to 45. 30's still feisty, but a big improvement. Bet all my big-boat friends are happy!

Glad to hear it missed you.

If Long Island had been hit hard it could have been really bad, not only for the people there, but for the entire US economy.
