We had 2" in the morning and it was gone by 1 PM. The most I've seen at my place was 18" last year that lasted two days.

So have you gotten your money's worth out of that boat yet? Amortized, you must be down to a buck or two per sail by now. I figure I'll be there in another 80 years?

Jeff, yep, all 8 of my kids are healthy though we almost lost one a couple of years ago. He was the sole survivor of a wreck that cut a full size truck in half, as a passenger. It took him about 6 months to walk again. It was real hard on him considering he was very athletic and able to do fancy dunks in basketball. Now, he doesn't play.

erps, I might be down to about 15 cents per sail now, not including moorage.

Jody, nah, I got rid of all of my guns years ago. I love guns but couldn't justify keeping or having them anymore. I mean, how're ya gonna justify keeping a selective fire assault rifle or submachine gun with kids? The wind was only blowing about 2-3 knots when we put the chute up so it was hard to keep full. We finally doused and motored in about 8 o'clock.

lol... well sorry I missed out...as the kind of snowed in I did was with vicks vapor rub... But agree with the guns It was a redneck comment to re-assert myself as not being a chap wearing wanna be (I hate chap stick... rubs, pokes, and otherwise just gets in my way) thing... ?

At any rate - got my slip, and everything else is in order... let me know if you need help when dry-docked (purposely straying away from the nautical term "on the hard" - these Sailnetters are cruel especially those named BF)....
