Hurricane IRENE - 8-27/28-11

On Sat am - I went to the GSB to get in some weaks for 2hrs max...-- super calm -- flat [email protected] the ramp @ 5:45... in the water...and 2 guys show with trailers...one guy said" you actually going out???"...then I asked the Dock master -- how many boats were @ the ramp yesterday ( fri) trying to get out "200+" ...yikes...getting there would have been easy and I might have been solo fishin the area...but hours to get back on th trailer wasn't an option..made a command decision..put her back on the trailer...and went home and batten down the hatches around the house instead..as well as waterproofing the basement ASAP..

HUGE cat 1 storm made land fall just east of NYC..

Since 1969 only 8 storms other storms of 74 mph + have made land fall or even come close to LI - and only one was worse than Irene in my area Gloria we lost power for 2 weeks..

1972 - Angnes - TS
1976 - Belle - TS
1985 - Gloria - Cat 1-2
1991 - Bob - TS (Missed just off east end)
1996 - Bertha - TS
1999 - Floyd - TS
2004 - Charley- TS (Missed just off east end)
2008 - Hanna - TS
2011 - Irene - Cat 1

Earliest was June 13-
- latest was Sept 15

So maybe that's it for this year....

The storm was crazy down in Port Jefferson the water came up about 2 feet over the bulk head...and went across 25A....

- gas station had lines around the corner - many had no gas @ all..signs on the pumps
- stores ran out of water , ice and canned foods.
- had to go 25miles away to find ice the next day.

- 29th -took me 8 hrs to clean up the branches..
- power out for 2 days...many people for nearly a week..the
- neighborhood was alive with the sound generators..

- checked on Samson late Sunday 28th.. very happy to see us - has was fine.
- boat had only branches in it - no damage
- House has a leak in the ceiling above the bedroom.
