Dear Mr. Weatherman...

...please don't muck up tomorrow's forecast. Sure, it's completely irrational, but I will hold you personally responsible if I don't get to sail this weekend and you may in fact witness the most epic of all temper tantrums. The sea is calling me and my novice skills like a dealer to a crackhead and I have a new gps to play with like a kid on Christmas morning...

Yep, nothings getting done at work today...

Yep, same here... Sea trialing a Beneteau first 38 tomorrow with a buddy who wants a liveaboard, should be fun. Forecast is sunny, high in the low 80s, 10 knots of breeze. Fun times...

Re: Dear Mr. Weatherman...

No, no, no, nooooooo

The only way to get good weather is to stay completely beneath the radar. Your plans should remain completely unnoticed and you should meekly proceed with humble submission and respect to the weather gods.

I'm afraid you're now destine to be hit by lightening and the rest of us are going to endure the crappy weekend weather, as a result.

Thanks alot.

Exactly, the only way to save it now is to put an umbrella and raincoat in the car, lose the sunglasses someplace , write a list of housecleaning chores, tell everyone you can that you will sleep late Saturday and clean out the basement...maybe make a dentist appointment for 2 pm if you can manage that....

Re: Dear Mr. Weatherman...

All is not lost - you can still recover! Pack a duffle bag with all your foul weather gear, a couple of fleece jackets. then make up a list of rainy day projects. Take it all to the boat. Then you can reluctantly get talked into sailing - just for a couple minutes, mind you - when the expected bad weather holds off for a few minutes.

Re: Dear Mr. Weatherman...

Actually, there is one and only one possible remedy. The weather gods are going to see right through the fake foulie packing now.

You go out tonight and consume rum like it was your job. While ordering another, you proclaim your foolishness to the bartender and drown yourself in sorrow and remorse. The truth is, you should want to abuse yourself for what you've done to us all.

When you awake with the worst hangover you've ever had, the weather gods may believe you've done your penance and have mercy on us all. You can then go on your Advil nurtured sail.

Ok ok ok... As we speak, I'm searching for my umbrella, packing foul/cold weather gear, and the rum... well that's the easy part - consider it done

Is there not a special dance as well?

Dang, now I feel like "that guy" that brought "Zima" to a keg party back in the 90's. LOL

If you understand that reference, you must be in the same generation as me ;-)
