Re: Day 1. Tropical Storm Barry Forms in Gulf of Mexico

We are IN IT off Miami on the Liberty Of The Seas RIGHT NOW!

Its freaking HOWLING out here. Ship's instruments are showing south winds of 50-58mph STEADY; we're basically holding station intending to dock this morning. IMHO they'd have to be NUTS to run the inlet in this crap, but heh, I've seen more insane things done.

I have no idea what the sea state is - its still dark - but it sure isn't "nice" - we're getting tossed around quite nicely on this 1100 footer.

There's stuff flying all over the top exposed deck on the ship - I'm in the solarium with my laptop and have a good signal, so far, so good..... just coming back after a nice Caribbean vacation.

The drive home today ought to be REAL pleasant. NOT!

50mph storm my ***. The wind has been in the 50+mph range for close to an hour now and we're what - 100+ miles from the core?
