Global warming, anyone? Haha.

Does any of this have indication on the severity of hurricane season? I'm pretty new to planning for weather...

I don't think Texas will mind to have a few hurricanes. they need liquid H2O.

At least Watertown has ethanol free gas now: Watertown Daily Times | ETHANOL-FREE GAS BACK FOR BOATS
not that I live near Watertown, NY.
Apparently J24's have a nasty habit of sinking when knocked down as one sank in NY Harbor on Weds. July 13th. The Manhattan Yacht Club has apparently lost a J24 before: The Sinking of 12
They got 40 - 50 knot gusts as a storm blew through. We got about 30 knot gusts about 25 miles up the Hudson River at our race that day. We could use some rain too but I'm sorry to say that summer here in the north east has been pretty good overall.
Hope you get some wind, rain and how do you deal with those high temps?

It's just about the only thing that will help us right now. We need a cat1 to come onshore between Galveston and Corpus, move into Central and North Texas, and stall as a tropical depression.

Bent ... if you have 5 knots right now then you are doing better than us. Dead calm in Sydney right now I'm afraid. We are just about to go down to the boat but its going to be a short motor to a favourite anchorage for the night. Maybe tomorrow we'll have some wind. This winter in Sydney its either been dead calm (not unusual for a Sydney winter) or bloing like stink from the west (not so usual).

Andrea ... I'm not sure about the Dawg but I confess to calling anybody younger than me (the vast majority of the population its sad to admit) 'kiddo'. I fear its an aging hippy thing. Is ageism prejudice against the young (curse you young pups) or the aged ?

Haha. It's not just you. I've been a registered member for about a day and I've been called "kiddo" by a couple people.

In the Channel Islands area we are having the best summer in years, perfect wind, perfect temps, warm water and....no time to sail. Haven't had the boat out since around Easter... I think, been to long to remember.

Stay away from those nice looking mushrooms please. Now I see what the selection process for mods is!!!

Back to the topic....It is a rotten season this [and last year]

Maybe 2013?

Yesterday on Chesapeake was fantastic. Temps in mid to upper 80, winds 5-10 knots. Got my boat to 7 knots for over 4 hrs and was able to go 4 miles up Magothy on sails. Finally a perfect day on the water. Sorry about your heat wave. Hope you get a break soon.
