Bright and sunny here this morning.  Pleasant breeze.  Absolutely no thought of 
rain at this moment.  To test that, I am about to hang out laundry!

The "center"of 99L has long passed us, but there is still a bit of rain in the 
forecast.  I am still hoping to add some to the cistern!

Our rugged and strong hurricane hunter vessel, "Conch Pearl" set out this 
morning from Provo with a strong and able bodied crew.  We searched high and 
low for signs of bad weather, but found barely a gust.

Winds seemed fairly constant at about 18knots with gusts to 25knots.  We saw 
two rain systems pass nearby, but no thunder or lightning.  Several tour boats 
were out and the passengers were all enjoying themselves.  The water was 
beautifully warm and inviting.

As 99L further deteriorates, we expect more of the same for tomorrow.  Gusty 
winds and rain showers, but that's about it I guess.

Best Regards,
Capt. John
Aboard Conch Pearl
