It is a rare event to have a hurricane come up to meet us. In fact, the last hurricane to hit New England was Hurricane Bob in 1991, which was a category 2 storm. In 1997, we had brushes with Edouard and Fran, but I believe both were just strong Tropical Storms.
I had friends visiting on a cross-country roadtrip from Portland, OR at the time, and they insisted on driving up the Cape to P'town during Edouard. We fought crosswinds on US-6 going up that way but stayed well on the road, and then we watched seagulls in nearly suspended animation as they tried to fly into the headwinds.
By the time we got back down to West Yarmouth, the winds had died down, and we had dinner at a restaurant there. (I wonder if Mama Angie's is still on 28?)
