Zipping around Nantucket on a double moped this last week. The island is currently bracing to receive a tropical storm. We took a ride to see the ocean today, in a gap between the rain, but a wind whipped up while we were on the beach and it began to pour, and hail. So we jumped back on the bike and drove 5 miles to town, feeling the first of the storm, bearing down on us.
The forecast shows gale force winds, inches of rain, and a high storm surge, with the surf report showing a 15 foot swell on the surf side beaches. Starting late tonight. For now, the air is warm, and there is a calm.
