Winter has arrived in PNW.

Snow everywhere today, about 3-4" here in LaConner.

Crusty was hoping to get the chance to shovel a dock again.....

Not much snow here but very cold (in the teens overnight) and NE wind (40 gusting 75 last night). Bloody frigid!

We received about 7 inches of the gift in Port Angeles. First snow of the season. Hopefully the last.

We have 6 more days of 70* weather before we head back north. I just checked the weather forecast for the coming week and it's mid-20's in the daytime and mid teens at night.


I already know how much that sucks. Maybe next year my Galley Wench will listen to me when she asks the most stoopid question of the year: "When do you think we should fly back north?"


I told her around mid April. Oh, nooooo, she couldn't be down here that long.


Now she's thinking maybe she really could be down here until April.

Yep, a bit frosty around the edges for a couple more weeks. Probably end up being one of the colder Feb's in a long time. Bring on the global warming!

WINTER is when the bay freezes over and you can drive on the ice!

In nice winter weather, this can be fun.

...and it appears we will have another dose Friday/Saturday. I was looking forward to a 3-day boating weekend, but Windy (ECMWF) is predicting 45 knot gusts in the islands for a good chunk of Saturday. We will be staying home.

For a liveaboard snow is a delight.

It adds extra insulation , and sound reduction , and a quick look at the deck will show areas that are heat leaks , and where the boats insulation is working.

No snow shovel, a stiff broom will clear walking areas.

Winter in Maine started two months ago. There's a saying here that we have ten months of winter and two months of damn poor sledding. Not entirely accurate.

Our Sunday morning return flight to WA may be cancelled. The airport we're flying in to is closed right now because they can't keep up with the snowfall. It's coming down faster than the plows can shove it off. The airport says they will open some time tomorrow morning but at this point they don't know when.


I've already picked up the rental car so I hope the flight goes as scheduled.

The Bob Seger concert at the Tacoma dome was postponed (cancelled) for tonight. From what the venue is saying the decision was because the state and local govt requested the rescheduling because of the conditions in Tacoma and so many people were travelling from other ares for the concert. Worked for us since we had already decided to forgo the show and figured we would lose the money. Hopefully the new date is free on our schedule.
