The Hurricane Barrier Shut

We were safely tucked in the boat and it was windy outside.  Tim looked out to the barrier and noticed the opening getting smaller.  Then we heard a fishing boat call the control people and they told him the barrier was closed until the morning.  A Tow Boat called to get in but graciously accepted the news that the harbor was closed for the night.  DH thought it was merely a practice run but we learned later that it was due to a tidal surge and was for real.  I never slept better.

  1. I hope that tow boat finally got their Burger King!

    I can’t remember which one exactly, but it reminded me of some movie where they close the gate every night at sunset to protect the village from the beasts outside. Kinda creepy!
