    I'm worried about them, too.
    She's a tired old barge but she's paid for!

    We, and the Lotus Eater, are fine. Edenton took very little damage. A good bit of rain, and some of the lower streets were flooded, but Florence left us minus a big fender and a stuck bilge pump,only one of twelve, so really, very minor inconveniences. We, and our cat, baled out, flew down to Bay Minette, AL, to visit family for a very pleasant spell. As soon as the clouds cleared, we headed northeastward with a tailwind, to start removing plywood from the windows and picking up sticks. Very lucky, unlike our neighbors to the south, some of whom still have no access to the outside world.

    Happy to hear that you and the Lotus Eater are fine. Sorry to hear about your friends. Best wishes to them.

    Well, two more meteorological bullets mostly dodged Florence and Michael have skimmed us, but we made out a lot better than others. We had bit of minor houseboat carpentry, dock repair, and a bit of yard cleanup, and now we can hope the rest of the 2018 hurricane season will leave us alone.
