1st Day Back on the Island

Well I am back on the island and got to play with Mercury (my computer) for the 1st time in 22 days. It is hard to imagine how much water really got on the island. Even though it was only a high category 2 (it was 110mph winds. A category 3 has 115mph winds and up), because of the large size of the hurricane the storm surge was like a category 4. It went up 19 feet. To see what that might be like go to this link. There is a reason I left. I still do not understand the 40% of the people who live on the island stayed.

Click on a number then click play.
Storm Surge.
