Looks like we will get at least a Category 1 hurricane through Grenada. We are in a marina that was totally wiped out by Hurricane Ivan in 2004. One choice was to make a run south for Trinidad (several boats around us did that). Decided to stay here. Good decision for us since latest says Trinidad will be hit as well. Spent our day prepping for the storm. Took off and stowed anything that could be ripped from the boat by 70-100 mph winds, doubling and tripling our lines, making a run for the supermarket, filling our tanks with fresh water, topping off our diesel fuel. (If we lose shore power, we can make our own power with diesel generator, solar panels and wind generator (assuming the wind vanes don't get ripped off). We will stay on the boat unless it becomes a Category 2 or 3 or 4 in which case we will follow the Grenadians to safety on the high ground per their evacuation plan. Storm will hit us on Tuesday night. Woe are the folks west of us--Aruba, Bonaire, Curacao where, after it passes Grenada, will likely strengthen and turn into something far worse. More to come...
