Blowing like a You-Know-What

After a very unsettled day yesterday, May 8, it suddenly calmed down. However, the NWS had posted a gale warning starting after midnight. Danielle just told me that the gale will continue at least until 4 pm. Oh well, not much to do but lie in bed and catch up on the blogs.
Last night, at precisely midnight, the wind started howling. It was getting to be a wild ride. No problem to sleep though, except some occasional wave slapping.
Below is a video that I took this morning. The boat is continuously heeled over by about 5 degrees. We also had to rescue Donnie's boat where a fender had jumped off. Not a good thing.
