Irene Tropical Storm Warning

Storm Flag over Gloucester USCG Station. ©2011 Steve BorichevskyIrene’s here. Fortunately, we are just getting a blow. We are not really getting that much rain. It is not surprising that I’ve only seen two boats out on the harbor today. Both of the Gloucester USCG 47 foot Motor Lifeboats were out this morning.

These boats have two helms, one above and one inside. I cannot say I’ve ever seen them inside, not even in winter. I guess the weather must have to be a lot crappier than it is today.

Those have to be the dirtiest USCG boats I've ever seen. Normally snow white and pristine at all times.
