Our friend Antz, who took this photo, informed us that the wind reached 123 mph yesterday at Black Island. He's out there performing some maintenance tasks to our off- continent communications system. That's not the windiest we've had it in the area as it exceeded 140 knots (161 mph) in 2004, but I certainly wouldn't want to be out in it. I think that Antz and the crew were safe and sound and not out and about in that wind though. They're too smart for that!
