We Survived Elsa

July 3, 2021 – Where are Tim and Ash?

With wind gusts here in the marina of 65+ knots, Ash and I spent most of the day bunkered inside the boat eating chocolate cake and watching a season of Game of Thrones on our tv.

Meanwhile, Hurricane Elsa battered the islands of St. Lucia and Barbados on Friday (July 2), tearing off rooftops, downing trees and power lines and blocking roads as it moved across the eastern Caribbean with 75 mph winds and heavy rain. Following the all-clear shortly before 5 p.m., the director of the National Emergency Management Organization, Dorine Gustave, said crews would be out clearing roads of fallen trees and downed power lines.

“We are asking St. Lucians to please remain at home and allow the teams to go out there and do their work,” she said.

Today it is sunny and clear! We cleaned the boat and all is back to normal as of lunchtime. Our pre storm preparations paid off, as Intrepid suffered no damage.
