Where is that rainbow?
Prior to our heading south, everyone was dying to know what we were going to do about hurricanes. Our answer was simple… we just won’t be going “that far south” until the end of hurricane season. And we haven’t! So why is it that we need to be concerned about Earl causing problems here in the Chesapeake? We kept up our end of the bargain, didn’t we?
Like just about everything else sailing and cruising related, dealing with storms like this is way new for us. Fortunately we have at least half a dozen people looking out for our best interests. We have received numerous emails and phone calls from people, both in this area and abroad, offering us places to stay and intel on where to go and what to do.
Curious to see what a “hurricane hole” looks like (a place where one could safely weather a storm), we followed the Sassafras River almost to its end where Skipper Bob recommends anchoring in what he refers to as a hurricane hole. Well, we’re here now and I’m not entirely sure what would make this place so special. Perhaps our blog readers who are more educated on this subject could tell us what would make a secure and safe hiding place?
I guess it was a bit premature to be singing the following song, eh?
