Got the news that Katreina will get to start school tomorrow and she couldn't be more thrilled.  How to celebrate?  By finally checking out Calypso's, the restaurant up at Herrington Harbour North.  Good choice--it was $1.50 crab and $2 draft night!  Captain's happy! 

He's got crabs!

Slow start to the week

We got power back sometime in the wee hours of the morning, but it's still a slow start to the week. Katreina's first day of school was called off today so she headed into the city with Frank, and tonight we learned that school is still closed tomorrow. Poor girl is desperate to start kindergarten! But I guess the county still has folks without power so we'll be patient. The marina is already pretty much cleaned up, and the weather tonight is perfect. It's good to be home!

I talked to Frank this morning right before he went to bed (0745!) and he said that while it was loud and very windy through the night, all was well.  The surge was a non-event.  I stayed in Gaithersburg until after lunch to give him a chance to rest, but was anxious to return.  We don't have power or cable, but for the most part the marina faired well.  One tree partially fell on a boat and a few folks have head sails that are torn to shreds, but that's about it.  I'm a little surprised at how humid it still is, but we're working through it.  Frank has been a machine, getting all the canvas back up by himself, and I pitched in to take some of the spare lines off.  With that, we're off to take a walk and chat with our friends!
