Ya! right Charlie..Looking out my window it looks like a great sailing day to me too... .....Must be all that constant warm fuzzy feeling you have from cheating that poor couple out of their boat for 20 bucks...

Hell, nobody put a gun to their heads. I could've used the dodger that was supposed to come with the boat today. The one they reneged on after the fact. Ah well, I still got a sweet deal and I do sail it like I stole it every chance I get.

At least the snow stuck at your house.

Ah, visibility is back down below 1/8 mile again. Seeing as I don't have AIS or Radar, I suppose going out in this solo isn't a very safe idea. That and the wind chill is somewhere around 25F. I guess I'll be happy with going out tomorrow. Jody's coming up again and one of my Sons is going. Neither of them will puss out like the other pair.

I had snow down here in the Seattle area yesterday too. Stuck on the lawns, trees, tops of cars that were not moving etc. not on the concrete/asphalt surfaces. Still played havoc with the minds of most folks tho. "IT"S SNOWING" "TIME TO PANIC!!!!" Yeezus.

Did not get to go sailing today, as the boat I was to be on has an engine problem. Maybe tomorrow morning's single race. If not, next weekends race will be out.

Jody was on his better behavier last night

Not sure what he was drinking or smoking either.

Off to work, need to pickup some pavers, clean off a flat roof on commercial building. Partly sunny, more clouds than anything, but at least dry since about 5PM yesterday.

Not here, clouds on the deck and snowing like hell again.

It's not the cold or snow I mind. It's not being able to see what might be hurtling through the water at 20 knots towards me that bothers me. Especially considering the fact that three separate shipping lanes converge where I sail.

Stillraining, ya gonna work on the boat today or stay home where it's warm?
