Eryka, you get no sympathy for "snow days" in the Bahamas. Though I've seen the locals wearing winter coats and sandals when it's in the 60s.
I keep a stiff broom and a small plastic snow shovel to clear my decks.
WanderingStar, I realize I won't get any sympathy, nor dare I ask for any. Its just an indication of the scale of this storm that edges reach clear down here. Its also pretty amusing to see the locals in their sweatshirts, muttering because it'll go down into the 60s tonight. Well, it is WINTER, after all!
I know you're happy down there Eryka. I was just teasing. I once did get "snow days" in the Bahamas: the Northeast was snowed in and I couldn't fly home )
If you go to Marsh Harbour there's a sign in some-one's yard that says " Snow Emergency Route". I agree.
Well Clay, we put the tarp up on the boat last week so maybe it kept most of the snow out of the cockpit. It's going to take me all day here to dig out. At least 24 inches here! Will try to make it down to the boat this Tuesday to see what went on.
Yeah, I'm not looking forward to clearing the boat. Maybe I'll just let the snow insulate the decks for a bit.
Garffin, snow is insulation (ask an Eskimo) don't completely clear your decks of cabintop, the snow will help separate the warmth (I hope) in the cabin from cold air outside.
Garffin, that is about what I did yesterday, stuck my nose outside and found that there was too much snow to go anywhere, so I went back inside. Today I stuck my nose outside and found that there was too much snow to go anywhere, so I went back inside. I think tomorrow I will stick my nose outside and see if there is too much snow to go anywhere ... meanwhile these quilts are very warm and so is the food.
