Well, another storm is coming - Florence is her name. 

Have you been through extreme weather ?  I haven't, really.  There was the big storm in Toronto in 1998 (I think it was) but there wasn't even any power loss for us.

You ?

My first overseas trip was to the Philippines and I was based the first month there on a ship in the South China Sea. I got there just in time for typhoon Ruby to bare her teeth. We did a lot of rockin' and rollin' for about 3 days. Winds on the bridge hit up to 112kts. Thankfully I'm not prone to motion sickness but there were a number of crew members who didn't stray far from the heads.
