The first named storm of the year is here and according to several weather related sites, is the strongest tropical storm to hit NC this early in the season. In fact, it’s not even officially storm season yet, not till June 1st. I’m sorry but pre-season only belongs in sporting events. So no sailing this weekend, just prepping for Ocracoke in a couple of weeks, and securing Hemispheres a bit better for the storm. So as there’s no sailing photos to share, here’s some pending storm pictures.
