BIG winds

Wow, glad we were prepared for that big storm. Ony poor guy was in his dinghy returning to his boat when the winds arrived. MicMac danced around "like a ballerina" on her anchor (according to the sailor anchored behind us) when the winds jumped from 20 to 30-40 knots in one minute. A local restaurant clocked one gust at 50 knots. That was probably the one that sent everything on our table crashing to the floor as we heeled over. The excitement lasted for about 45 minutes, then the winds stayed around after the rain and lightning. NOT a good night for sleeping as the winds howled.
