Well, my fellow port-swillers, I will be off line for the next few days, so no hurricane blogging this weekend.  (Not that I don’t want to, but the port-swiller home computer is currently out of action and I am in the process of determining whether to fix it or simply take it out back and shoot it.)  In any event, it would seem as if the port-swiller residence is right on the knife-edge in terms of what comes next.  Depending on which way the storm track jigs, we’ll either need a lifeboat in the basement, or else will come out high and dry.  I’ve given up trying to guess which, although my hunch is that we’ll get a few rain bands but nothing blog-worthy.

For those of you living closer to the ocean and farther up the East Coast, stay safe and we’ll see you on the other side.
