Well, That was a Good Call…

We don’t often hide in a marina from the weather, but in this case we are happy we did. The cold front that came through last night has blown on by, and left strong north winds in its wake. How strong?

The graph here is the last five days of data from the weather buoy off Cape Hatteras. At noon today the winds from the north are blowing 30 knots, gusting to 40. The buoy is also reporting seas of 12 feet every 8 seconds, and those are still growing…

And did I mention it is freezing cold too? So it is really nice to have the dock power available to run the cabin heaters while we are waiting.

By tomorrow morning things will have calmed down a bit, and we can get back sailing south, as planned!

    Woos. I was out steelhead fishing.  Three good hookups including one almost to net and one took me WAY into backing twice.  None brought to hand though. Only a bit of snow. Sent from my Verizon, Samsung Galaxy smartphone
