Re: Heading south

We have the propane heater on Tessie and a forced air diesel heater on Tiki so getting warm in the evening is no problem. Just driving Tiki at the moment is a bit nippy.

Re: Heading south

We had to stop short of our goal last night as the Figure Eight Island Bride was frozen shut with hydraulic issues due to the cold. So we went into a creek just to the left of it and dropped the anchor there for the night. Right now we are a bit stuck in the mud and are waiting for the water to come back. Should be able to get out of here by 11 and then go through the bridge as they got it fixed early this morning. See how long I can stand the cold in the cockpit today and where we end up after todays leg of the trip.

Just read about the heat wave in Australia and you can be glad it's "only cold" here: NASA's Alarming Map of the Worst Australian Heat Wave on Record - John Metcalfe - The Atlantic Cities

And, I'm sure this will come as disappointing news, to some... :-)

I'm sure you're kidding, and frustrated by the cold snap, but unfortunately a lot of people do use this kind of logic. They'll take one point of data "It's cold, today, where I am" and think that this somehow disproves the global trend towards a warming climate.

Meanwhile Australia burns and Norway melts.

Re: Heading south

Why would the ships getting free be disappointing news, John? That just saved us a bundle of money because we can send our monster ice breaker that was enroute, back home.

And, I just heard on the news that this year's Antarctic Ice Pack was the largest in recorded history. And, the only reason the ships were able to get out was a big shift in the winds, which caused some of the ice to break up and shift.

Anyone that watches the Discover Channel's Deadly Catch on a regular basis knows how easy it is to get caught in the Arctic Ice Pack between Alaska and Russia during the short crabbing season. The ice packs can form in a matter of hours, and depending upon the winds, they can quickly compress and stack, which is something I've seen while in the navy. It was scary to say the least.

Re: Heading south

Minnie sail, there's a big debate about whether or not this is actually taking place, and the latest information from the climatologist claims there has been no temperature increases in the past 16 years. Additionally, most people, including myself, sincerely believe that if there is any global warming taking place, it is NOT manmade, but instead, a natural phenomena created by sun spots, something that has been taking place since the planet came into being. And, despite what the politicians continue to say, there really is nothing that we can do about it. But, we sure have pissed away a lot of taxpayer dollars on this insanity over the past decade.

Cheers,

Gary

Please do not turn this very nice thread into another GW debate.
