    I can remember a short-lived one in May, but that's pretty rare.

    The reality is: Subtract Hurricane season, then you have Norte Season. Norte's close the port much, much more than hurricanes.

    It's wintertime. We like to leave the US and think we left winter behind, but I have been blown out in many countries this time of year. It still beats whatever Chicago gets that day. :cool:

    Well, so far (8:20 pm) it is calm quite calm. I'm keeping my fingers crossed for the next 12 hours. By then, the boats will be out...

    You know the Harbor Master can call boats back in even after diving has started? Wishing you luck. :thumb:

    Yep, but they can't go back in if their divers are in the water...

    So... What was the verdict? Did the harbor stay open?
    And... Of immensely more important proportion... What is tomorrow looking like?

    No, the port was closed. Things started going south (literally, with the wind from the North/Northeast), about midnight or so, and it was really rocking by 3 am. We dove the east side with Aldora. The way the water is looking right now (I'm watching it as I type), I'd say that unless things change a pretty good bit, it will be closed tomorrow as well, unfortunately.
