RE: January

Our weather is great. If only it lasted more than 4 months a year this area would be heaven. This is not my idea of heaven. "Snowpile 1. Snowblower 0." Not good boating weather today. Lend us some of of your SoCal stuff please Walt.

RE: January

The normal mantra re Queensland weather is "beautiful one day - perfect the next". Well, in light of what we have now, even tho the sun is shining, we will remain nervous, as the clean-up is beginning, but traditionally, March and April are the wettest months. Ye Gods, what else could go wrong.......?

Have just made a quick call into Dampier harbour after out running away from Cyclone Vince.
At least I got to call Gayle and she did not get flooded.
But it has been pretty disasterous all round.
Downloaded the latest Coastal Passage and it had a report on the floods in*Maryborough and Bundy, boats everywhere.
Heading back out again now and it looks like there could be another cyclone forming in the Kimberleys.

I was home for the 74 floods and they stick in my mind like they were yesterday.
It's hard being away when something like this happens as one feels completely useless

RE: January

December and January is when we have tide up to 14 ft and with all the rain 15+ ft to the point the water is with on a foot of the parking lot.* Very odd strange to see the Eagle towing over the dock.* End of January during the Seattle boat show is usually when we get the coldest and most snow.* Last years it was a Blizzard which if great as it give boater a change to see/fell how the boat is on cold windy weather.* Most boat over 40 ft have a diesel heater so they are nice comfy and dry.*

I like the season, and do not mind the rain/snow but could do with out the wind.* Usually after a storm there is a few nice days which allow you to get ready for the next storm.* Sail boaters have to be the craziest boaters as they go out in the stuff and think its fun bundled up in their cold rain gear with ice icicles hanging from the nose.* Fisher people are not far behind sail boaters.* Most morning I standing at the galley window in my pink bunny slipper having my morning cup of coffee as they motor by and they call us Live aboard crazy?*
