CapnRehab caught by hurricane Sandy!

It seems a little strange that the Capn left Florida for a short weekend trip to Maryland, and got caught by hurricane Sandy.  Look how Florida is completely clear of bad weather!

As I’m sure you’ve all heard, it’s a pretty big storm.  I’ve been checking www.sailflow.com for projected windspeed, and here is their prediction for our highest speeds.  Me and Mrs. CapnRehab are approximately in the blue circle, near Upper Marlboro, MD.

The wind will be picking up speed from now (2pm) till then, then should start dropping off after 9 or 10pm.  20 knots is 23 mph, but that is steady. I’m not sure what the gusts will be.  I’m hoping to get some interesting video from the back porch here.  I’ll post it if we don’t lose power.  (but losing it is pretty much expected).

We’ve got extra water, food, and batteries – and our cell phones are fully charged so I think we’re all set.

I hope everyone else caught by this storm is prepared and comes through well.
