We Made It !!!

Pre-hurricane dinner with friends.
What hurricane?
Helping Paul & Jean on "Miss Daisy" the next am
Sorry it's taken so long to add new post. IRENE really put a wrinkle in our mad dash to get ready for going south. Sunday night was definetly one of the scariest nights of our lives. Although Irene was downgraded to a tropical storm by the time it hit us, it was terrifying. Not knowing what was going to happen was so anxiety provoking. Also, our insurance application was still in process & they halted all new applications 24hrs befor the we had none. Truely the worst storm I've ever witnessed, but we did fine & so did the boat. The 3 days of preparation paid off. Scott worked so hard & did such an awesome job keeping the 3 of us safe. We were up most of the night..Scott would go out & re-tie things, pull logs out of the water that were hitting our boat. He is my hero. Jesse did fine too. He didnt seem to mind at all. He did have to hold his bladder for 16hrs. We tried to make him go on puppy pads but he wouldnt. So after a sleepless night, Irene didnt pass over us until 11am the next day & wasnt over until 3pm. It was like a really bad monsoon for 16hrs. All our friends faired well too. We feel so lucky because several sailboats in the area broke loose from their anchors or docks & were destroyed. Thank you for you're phone calls, msgs, & prayers. Hearing from loved ones definetly made us feel less alone. Love, Scott, Michelle & Jesse

So happy to hear you are safe and sound. Knew you would have done everything you could to "batten down the hatches". Happy to hear Jesse was able to manage, too. XO Scott, you really are looking more and more like an old tar! :>) We miss you three!!
