Some of you may have read in the news that a "freak storm" ripped through the Keys the other night. We made it through unscathed, but it was a little frightening. It wasn't as "freaky" as the papers may have led you to believe. We had 2 or 3 similar storms last winter in Key West.
The scary part was a report of a waterspout inside the harbor! I'm not sure it really was a waterspout but the sound that accompanied the onset of the storm was something out of a sci-fi movie. It sounded like tearing metal, or a banshee screaming. The boat spun around on its mooring and the dinghy got all twisted up in the mooring line, but other than that, no damage. It's nice to be attached to something that's screwed into the bedrock! The weather service confirmed 60 knot winds but nobody broke loose.
On a lighter note, Bev took a trip last month to see her granddaughter, Kahlenn, on her first birthday. Here are a few pics of Kahlenn and the family.
