Hand sucks. It is getting better, but very slowly. Will be weeks more before I use it. I don't do sitting around well at all.

According to our plan, by now, we should be halfway from Cape Town to St Helena, well in the trades.

Back home on Lake Ontario after something over 36,000 nm circumnavigator. Not surprisingly there is a lot of stuff I want to get done on Ainia both cosmetically and functionally. Getting an early start so it will be ready to go for next summer (Lake Superior?).

Re: Nor'easter

Just got back in from an afternoon of sledding. Hot cocoa for the kids and warm alcoholic drinks in thermos bottles for the adults.... Fun stuff... Kids could have stayed out there for a few more hours....

My commercial fisherman customer made it back late yesterday so no worries there.....

Re: Nor'easter

That's the way to make the winter fun while waiting for spring. Glad to hear your friend made port. Wish I was in Portland Sun.

High winds will create some serious drifts if the snow fall is what they are predicting. Hope your customers out fishing have gotten home. It is cold!

Well, we're clocking 25 - 35 mph winds, from the ENE right now.
The boat looks like it is frosted. I should get some good pictures of her tomorrow.

Re: Nor'easter

People seem to forget what winter is. We are New Englanders for Christ Sake. The Governor of Massachusetts gave a press conference from a MEMA Bunker in Framingham issuing an executive order that there is not driving after 4:00 PM. What if I run out of Makers Mark? I think a lot of it is driven by the hungry news machine.

Then again; i watch the news and see catastrophic accidents when they have 3 inches of snow in Tennessee.
I guess i'm used to it.

I'd like to be in the BVI too.
It also depends on the equipment you have to deal with it. I was in Dallas one year and they had 4 inches of snow and ice. It was a mess, they had town pick up trucks backing up with guys in the back with shovels pitching out salt. It was days before the roads were cleared. Now here in the Mid Hudson it will disrupt us for a day, and that is it. I do get sick of the news media hyping everything as an emergency.

Re: Nor'easter

Minne, great news. Enjoy! I'll be digging out in the morning and then probably again in the afternoon. Lucky me.
