While our American friends are heading to the polls this morning, and some of our Canadian friends are waking up to snow, this is the current situation on Green Turtle Cay in Abaco, courtesy of subtropical storm Nicole.

These videos were taken at high tide, just before 8:00 am Eastern time this morning.

So far, we’ve had a lot of cool wind and relatively little rain. Just some quick, spotty showers yesterday afternoon and overnight. (And one just started as I’m writing this…)

According to the National Hurricane Center, the worst of Nicole’s winds and rain should begin arriving over Abaco late this evening and extend into tomorrow.

Though for now, the storm doesn’t appear to be intensifying to any major degree, there’s still the possibility of storm surge, flooding and possible tornadoes or waterspouts.

Wrigley and I are hunkered down in Fish Hooks Cottage, with all the food, water, flashlights and batteries I expect we’ll need.

Assuming we still have power and Internet, I’ll post an update this evening.

    Wishing you and Wrigley the best of luck with Nicole’s tantrums…..

      Thanks, John! With any luck, this will be a blip that passes quickly.

    Similar situation here in MH this morning. Waves were breaking over Front Street earlier, when tide was high. I worked in the field for 2 hours, but was too windy to do it properly, so we gave it up. I got extra gas for the generator, and extra water. Fingers crossed the power doesn’t go, but expect it will, tonite. Tomorrow should see the worst weather.

      Yes, I expect you’re right about the power. I’m hoping for the best but prepared for the worst. Stay safe!
