I don't know anyone named Irma and don't want to meet anyone named Irma--especially a hurricane! Linda just got a notice from NOAA to put us on alert that Irma is very dangerous and heading our way. Rascal is in Curaçao--tied to a dock with multiple lines and fenders and approved by our insurance company as hurricane ready--which means nothing if a category 4 plows through. We'll see. The good news is that there hasn't been a serious hurricane in Curaçao since 1877. The bad news is "So what?"
Rick and Linda Grimes bought a sailboat and left the U S of A for the Caribbean in 2015.
