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.

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.

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.

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!!

I think this year looks good. The days are getting longer. The cold is going to bite but the sun is with us more each day. I plan on raising my sails more in 2014
Good Day , Lou

Re: Hello!! Saling newbies from Kentucky!!

Geometryteach - we sure will let you know. We will need to spend some time over there actually sailing this spring/summer before we head out with the boat. Here's to all of us being able to sail more this year than any of us got to last year!!!

Happy New Year Everyone!!!

Re: Hello!! Saling newbies from Kentucky!!

If you end up at KY Lake, let me know. We may be around. Due to my husband's travel schedule, we don't get there as much as we would like but I hope to be there a good bit this summer.

Happy New Year
