No, no, no ... no way, José.

I have a ticket for a long overdue meetup with my best friend (bestie?  bff? I don't ever know what term I'm supposed to use - you know, the one that won't elicit a, "Mom.  Really?")

Anyhow, I'm getting out of town next Monday on a flight to - wait for it - South Carolina.  I'm hoping to at least get there.  Return is ... whatever, lol.

It looks like Jose is less of a threat now than he was a couple of days ago. 

All this is subject to change at any moment.

I'll be staying on the ground, myself, Dun. 

(Also, how long ago did you grab that? Right now I see the winds at 500m being about half what your image shows.)

That is pretty much what I was looking at. We should be west of the eye and I would expect something like a Northeast Gale. Just hope they are right. Of course it could be on the west extreme of the possible track but I am unwilling to contemplate that.

Just heard over the scanner of a boat in trouble at the entrance of the Essex River off Two Penny Lane. The Coast Guard is communications with the boat but will not go out to assist due to weather conditions. However the Gloucester Police boat is on the way to help. 

The boat is a 16' Wellcraft.

GFD now reports they spotted their flare and believe the location is just off Cranes Beach. Ipswich Fire will be notified.

Gloucester police boat just talked to CG lady but she told them to switch to land line (I assume their cell phone).
(Only 12 inch seas?)
