Perfect Storm Skipper Speaks Out: The skipper of
the 32-foot sailboat that rode through the Perfect Storm in 1991 has a few words of wisdom about Hurricane
Sandy: "Don't be rash. I would be sure that I had a vehicle that was pretty substantial. I would be sure I
had a decent supply of fuel and water — and Graham crackers," 85-year-old Ray Leonard told the Associated
Press in a telephone interview on Saturday.
If people do get evacuation orders, Leonard said they should
either leave or, if they stay, be ready to take care of themselves.
"A storm like the one coming — and like the perfect storm, whatever that was — people tend to think that,
'Someone will come help me. Someone will come take care of me,'" Leonard told the AP. "In other words,
they don't look to be self-sufficient."
