Cold

It’s sooo cold! It got down to 11 degrees this morning. I guess the “South” part of South Carolina is a relative term. Supposed to be even colder tonight.

Comparatively though, I see the folks in the north are dealing with -30/40 degree temps with ice and snow. Those “lake effect” conditions are killers. This boat is in Traverse City, Michigan.
I lived in Maine for a while and never had temps like that, even the winter of 78/79.

I hope everyone is safe and warm and that your boats and families are all safe too. KJ

The thermometer outside my window says - 41C (whats that in Farenheit ?). I just took the dog for a walk, all of 50metres (whats that in yards). His pee froze as it hit the ground. Even in Canada this sucks !

Hey Oliver, let's go to the beach and show these guys what they're missing.
I finally turned the air conditioner off last night.

Some of you might like this. For those not liking four letter words, use discretion.

Hey Michael, how the heck are ya?

It got all the way up to 46 today. Sunny blue skies. The air was so clean you could smell the ocean from the boat. I actually sat out on the sundeck for a while.

Went to the movies this afternoon to see 47 Ronin. Not too bad. Not as bad as the reviews. Keanu Reeves still can't act.

The water main to the marina bar/restaurant ruptured from the cold last night. They're still working on it. Fortunately, the boat tolerates the cold much better than her skipper. I keep the main cabin heater on 24 hours. I’m hoping to turn it off over the weekend. The temps are supposed to get into the low 70’s. I let the water run from all the faucet’s every once in a while and run the engines for about 20 minutes.

I'm gonna get the boat set up so that I can get outta here in a hurry when the next extended Polar Vortex hits. I can be in the Fla Keys in about 14 hours (driving). I’ll probably stay at the same dive (dive) resort that I stayed at a couple of years ago. There’s a table at the Tiki bar there with my name carved on it.

Wish I was there now. KJ

The family is good. The boat is good. The winter sucks, although it’s getting pretty heated up here on my laptop watching the soft core ads on the Forum Headers. Does anyone else get this stuff? I guess that’s what I get for going to Hooters a couple of years ago. KJ
