What The Hell! It’s Supposed To Be Summer!

Ok this is just plan mean! The gods are not being nice and just messing with me. It’s Memorial Day! Not thanksgiving!!! 50 degrees and Gail force winds. What the hell? I have not been able to boating all spring, not even gotten close to the water and now this crap! Today is supposed to be a tad bit better. And of course durring the week it’s supposed to be beutiful. Just in time for work. The only good thing from this is that I get to get Suzy ready slowly and on dry land. Wtf who am I kidding. Lets go boating!!!!!

    Suzy’s looking good. We got Water Lily wet last week, and will be headed to the Spring Lake show on Friday. We are looking forward to Dennis Mykols showing us around a new lake.

    Splashed my clorox bottle a few weeks ago and have been out a little. It is still too cold and windy to take my woody out though.

      Yup. But today, in Madison at least, it’s sunny. We launched Claribel (in the cold and rain) three weeks ago. Unfortunately, she still hasn’t left the slip.

    Got the Gar wet on a lovely weekend – our May long – last week. No boost or charge needed, a tiny shot of fluid and fired immediately. I just bought a small vintage Case 444 tractor to move my boats around in the storage building and property with much greater precision than is possible with a truck, so I am nearly ready to go. I just have to retrieve my FOUR! boats that are being worked on and I will be soon on the water for the season! About 3.5 inches of rain here in the last few days, very wet but verdant!

    Same here in Northern MI. At least it’s sunny.

    The Raven is still in the barn. We’ve decided to take our time with paint and varnish since the weather won’t cooperate.

    I knew it would be a little cooler in the NW than Atlanta but thru western Montana/Coeur d’Alene, sleet on the windshield built up westbound but clear on the way back. Then about 5″ in Butte was melting down from the day before. Must be the coldest spring nationwide.

    This is snow at the Anaconda, Montana welcome station where we had java and cookies with Marine vets prior to Memorial Day, Semper Fi Marines.
