    Hurricane Juan
    From: Jim Thompson
    Date: 2003 Sep 30, 06:36 -0300

    Hurricane Juan blasted through here night before last at 0300, after
    ravaging Halifax further south around midnight.  Half a dozen boats sunk
    here at the yacht club.  Most of the rest of us have damage.  The docks at
    both marinas were badly damaged.  All very sad.
    Had to get up at 0400 to go down to the marina to try to further stabilize
    the docks around the neighbouring boats on our pier.  Beautiful night for
    viewing the stars, but the wind had picked up to 20 knots, threatening to
    undo yesterday's efforts to keep the boats from grinding together until we
    can untangle the mess.  So I did not get any practice identifying morning
    autumn stars and planets.
    Another long day at work today, then back to the marina this evening to
    ready the boat for pulling out for the winter, and for repairs.
    Cancelled our CN class tonight, needless to say.  First things first.
    I cannot begin to imagine what it was like on sailing vessels in centuries
    past during storms like that.
