Good news, the storm was not nearly as bad as forecasted, we did have some winds on the beach in excess of 75mph, but then we had a spectacular sunset after all of that….. Then about 4a, the thunder and lightning started… and heavy rain. We lost phone, and internet in town, but by 9:35am, finally got that restored. Still some rain and wind, and occasional thunder and lightning…. still wouldn’t paddle out today.
