Weather? Currently overcast, no rain, and almost no breeze. Hard to believe there is a hurricane just offshore.
The worst wind was early last night, and then no worse than a strong trade wind event. We have had much worse several times this year.
The rain gauge has not even made it to an inch of precipitation. We have had none of the torrential rain the other side of the island has experienced.
All is quiet here, no damage beyond having to pick up the usual scattered palm fronds.
The video below is the storm passing by our island over the last 38 hours. I started saving the 4km IR images as soon as the eye of Hurricane Lane entered the close range image and have assembled them into a video.
This is our closest pass so far for a hurricane. May the remainder of the season be uneventful…
