Perdido Pass during TS Gordon

Thank you to all who watched our coverage of TS Gordon and were concerned for our safety. Randy and I are safe and dry (finally) although some of the equipment is still a little soggy. Hopefully, that will be the last tropical anything we have to deal with for a while.ICYMI, this live shot from Perdido Pass Tuesday night around 10 o'clock kind of sums up what conditions were like including Randy's editorial comments at the end of the clip.
