Re: Hello!! Saling newbies from Kentucky!!

What a bite the cold has had Has anyone been looking at the extreme cold thread? 769 has been on their boat with ice and negative temps and now we are going to have more high wind and cold.
How is the rest of everybody doing? Still on the boat ?
I am not that tough I would go get a room and make it a holiday.
We saw a robin today that's kind of early must have been a lost bird. Spring is still a few weeks away .
Good day, Lou

I don't see any winds or cold on Kenlake for the coming week. Supposed to be 57/49 tomorrow with only 9mph winds and not supposed to approach anything resembling cold until Thursday when they are calling for a chilly 39.

Where was the cold winds supposed to be?

Re: Hello!! Saling newbies from Kentucky!!

Right here east KY. it is forecast to snow Tues Wed Thur. Lows in the twenty degree range . Cold by my scale They have backed off the wind now just 22mph it was predicting 30 mph This is not unheard of for Jan. we do get a lot of days in the winter that are 50 degrees or better. Ky. is no place for weather men.
Good news we saw robins they are the first birds to come back. They get caught in the late snow a lot. I have never seen them this early. When they get back in force winter is all but over. A few last snows and then the robins are eating worms. Maybe these two birds got lost. Still feels good to see them.
Good day, lou

Wow, I think we're further south. The forecast here is nothing like that at all.

Sun: 57/46
Mon: 55/36 possible rain
Tue: 52/28
Wed: 37/29
Thu: 55/31

Now I've been told that if you don't like the weather in KY, wait an hour... It'll change. I'm just glad that the harbor is all thawed out.

Tomorrow, Sun, is supposed to be beautiful and we intend to open everything up and let things air out.

Maybe you should come down out of those mountains and head out here to the lake.

Re: Hello!! Saling newbies from Kentucky!!

My husband is up at Lighthouse now, taking the ASA nav class. It is nippy but said it is not that cold. Glad he went up because one of the hatches on the boat was open. How? Not sure. It was definitely closed when we left. A little water damage but very fixable. It reinforces the fact that one must check on the boat during the off season regularly.

Re: Hello!! Saling newbies from Kentucky!!

Hope it was not a boat bandit that went to force or went to pry it open !!!!
Let some folks know to keep and eye out think n trail cam ? check snow for tracks ? Snow is gone here. Happy my boat is in my yard. We did have high winds and the wind can do strange things.
Regards, Lou
