Hope everyone is doing okay. We got some water seeping through the walls in our basement. Able to sweep it down the drain. Hopefully it won't get worse. The way the weather guy is talking the worst of the rain is over for us. Maybe another inch to inch and a half. The winds should still be bad though. Hopefully we won't lose power.
Thinking about all my friends! Stay safe.

This is the craziest storm I think I've ever experienced! So far we are doing ok. The storm is supposed to go directly over Lancaster and York. They are expecting 90 hour gusts! Hoping a is still in one piece and powered on over night!

Yeah. . .more.

Hope everyone survives Sandy. We're out of the storm's path, technically, but unfortunately we're in the outlying area where winds and moisture from Sandy are colliding with the frigid air of the cold front moving down from points north and west which means 50-60 mph wind gusts, temps below 30F, and snow. The wind worries me most--snow is no biggie (and we're looking at 4" tops)--since that's where the power losses arise. Leaves were down prior to the storm, so that should help. *crossing fingers, toes, legs, and eyes*

The first was sending this cruise out in the first place. We were not two hours out of dock when the weather turned south. The winds picked up, the waters turned rough and it was raining. They had to know that was going to be the case before that boat ever left dock. Of course we were told we were on track for nicer weather and calmer seas and that one of the two ports was out of the question and the other was highly questionable. The inference was that we would find smoother seas and nicer weather and hunker down for a couple days. Less than two hours out of port deck 12 was closed as was the aquaduck both of which were never re-opened because once we found nice seas and weather we hung around there for less than an hour and turned back into the storm to head to Nassau only to learn two miles away that the dock was damaged and we would not be able to dock. I guess that information must not have been available before the Captain could see the little guy on the dock with the red flags waving us off. Two miles away after we have spent the last 36 hours rocking and rolling? Conditions continued to deteriorate and got much worse during Saturday and Saturday night. Rather than hold back, even though the ship was rocking and rolling, the captain chose to forge ahead to get back to Canaveral in time for the next cruise. The ship should have never sailed in the first place but once sailed, we should have never sailed back into the storm. What other motivation would there be for DCL besides money? Did I mention that all outside access was shut off by the beginning of the second day and not opened up again until we were back at Canaveral? The final night I was literally gripping the bed until my hands hurt to keep from being tossed out of the bed. Anything loose in the cabin had already been sent to the floor and was sliding to and fro. All in an effort to get back to pick up the next group of cruisers. I continue to call for Captain Henry's discharge. He put our families at great risk. As you can tell, I still am very much agitated about this whole experience. We got on the boat only because I was assured by DCL that we would not be put in harms way and that even if the ports could not be accessed, there was calmer waters and nicer weather that we would be in. Lies! Sorry, but it will be a long time before I am over this.

I can only guess that it is because we are all hoping when we look at the picture that the doors will open and we will be transported to VWL.

And I don't know about the seat covers. I knew something was different but could not put my finger on it, but you are correct, they are different.
