Arrghh...winter's come early to the PNW

I don't like this one bit, I should be in shorts and and oilskin jacket right now, but no...mother nature decided to hit us with snow. Winter hasn't even started yet, what the hecks going on here?

Well that was late yesterday...this morning it rained all day and cleared that snow right off my boat. I actually did some much needed upgrades to the outside of the boat today but still, what's this winter going to have in store for us...is this just the beginning of hell on earth, it should be raining with periods of sunshine. What happened to global warming?

Nice photo! It will be 38* tonight and the forecast for tuesday's low is 29*. And I'm in south central TEXAS! Hell, the wife is wanting to book a trip to the Bahamas for New Years.

Keep warm...

I'm with you Steve, I don't remember another Thanksgiving with snow and ice like we just had. The wind started blowing last Friday evening and blew steadily until Tuesday morning. During that time we had about 4" of snow and temps down to 14F with the winds generally around 30-35 knots with gusts at times well above 60!. Lot's of trees down, but no damage that I'm aware of. Sure makes me wonder what winter is going to be like when it gets here. Stay warm up there, are you still in Lund?

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

Yeah it's been a cool week or so.. dramatic warmup today, as Steve said, and snow is disappearing rapidly.
John I'd guess Bilgewater is back in Campbell River by the look of his neighbours.

'La nina' may well do us in this year. If so, it's starting early!

As Ron wisely deciphered from my photo, I'm back in Campbell River until just after Christmas then it's back to the thriving megalopolis of Lund for a while. Things are good up here John, real good but I'm already looking forward to spring. Hope all is well down there and I hope we'll see you all soon. Maybe we need to do a Wet Coast SN raftup and ho-down soon. Don't plan one without me in mind, I can always sail south you know.
