Hot down here in New Orleans too, though not as outlandish as the temps up north.
Still, during a tues evening sail, we went from hot to very cool in a couple of minutes, and the big spike of 50-knot squall wind was just far enough west of us that we got 20 knots, no rain, and 92F became 72F right quickly
The instruments don't lie...
After that it was pleasant, except for all the dark clouds and lightning several miles off to the east, which I thought would get us, but didn't, though we got 25 knots from that one, which peaked at 40 off to our east. Here's the graph on squall no. 2, note the windshift(s).
We were double-reefed and rolled the jib in or out to suit the (changing) conditions. Ended up under bare poles and lifejackets at the very end.
But between the nearby storms, we saw a nice sunset.
So a little nerve-racking but how else can we beat the heat? ;-)
