A group of we boaters sit glued to the tv watching the news and weather. The latest update, showing Irma now heading due north into Naples and area, concerns us because it brings this thing closer to us as it continues north. I'm constantly checking two different weather apps, a hurricane app and the National Hurricane Center on my phone. To say we are consumed with this storm is not inaccurate. I try not to worry, but worry is inescapable. I'm not concerned about my own boat, it's as safe as a boat can be in these conditions, but I have friends on the west coast.
