We had rain all last week, pretty much. It's the rainy season here. We are still below our rain average, and there are a lot of places on the East coast that are flooding... Daytona Beach was shown on the news....WOW!!

Hurricane season starts shortly so of course all the radio stations and TV weather programs are featuring people [meteorologists] predicting what is going to they even have an IDEA!!!! How about I pull out my 8 ball and make the predictions? Bet I can beat THEM!

Now everyone's job in town is to stay dry. It's now pretty humidly tropical....steamy, almost. Our next job (as residents of the wonderful O Town) will be to take machetes out and do our yards because this weather encourages unbelievable growth!

Acquiring our Watkins 27 this weekend...YAY!!!!

Stay safe and dry.

Thank you Charlotte and Suky for your comments about the music... I download most of my video soundtracks from HERE.

Suky: I use two cameras. One is a webcam that I bought at an office supply store. It plugs into my computer's USB port and captures videos right from my desk. The other is a pocket-sized digital camera made by Fuji (Finepix F31). Most digital camera's have video capabilities, so just about any of them will take decent movies. I edit the videos with Windows Movie Maker, it is a free program that is bundled with Windows XP operating system. If you have an Apple computer they have a similar program called iMovie. These programs are very easy to use. HERE is a great website that explains things much better than I can.

I hope that helps.

Hi David,
I'm curious what camera you are using to do this video and what software to create and post. I've been looking to get one. Your choice of music is terrific.

David: Loved the video...what a beautiful boat and glad that you guys were able to get the challenge is to stay dry for a while.

This morning's weather said there was a weak tropical depression forming of North Carolina but their guess was it would be far enough offshore not to effect the landlubbers.

I didn't mean to mislead you... we are drying out now and the boat is fully unloaded. That video was made last Wednesday, one week ago.

WOW!!! I hope it stays somewhat dry for the next couple of days (good luck with THAT!) so you can unload. We are getting hit with this too, and because it rains so quickly, the gutters have problems handling it. The rain hits during rush hour almost like clockwork which makes the drive home a nice little challenge.
Stay safe and try to dry out!!!!

We are about two hours northeast of you and we are slowly drying out too... for awhile I thought we would have to move aboard the boat full-time. Watch this:
