Whoa Nelly!

6 Jun

I don’t know if you know this, but I KNOW people. Yep, there are folks out there that can fix just about anything, and I know a bunch of them. So let me show you what’s happening…

windy coast

…the waves are flappin’ at us, the winds are pushin’ at us, and poor little Bushranger is just about dancin’. Thank goodness my stalwart Captain elected to keep us safely tied and heavily fendered at Clayton, NY.

We just listened to the marine weather forecast and they mentioned winds gusting up to 50 kilometers per hour (for you Yanks out there, that’s about 31 miles per hour).  I know a few sailors out there are snickering, thinking, “50 kilometers per hours — that’s nothin’!” …well, maybe a sailboat would like to play with those winds, but for us trawlers that kind of wind is a recipe for disaster!

So, here’s my plan. I’m going to call my nephew who works at Accuweather. I’m sure if he knew what was going on up here, he would fix it!  After all, how can we go exploring the St Lawrence River and Thousand Islands if we are tied to the dock?

Right, where’s my phone…

    As you know LynnAnne I use Accuweather all the time – swear by it. You should get some good advice from your Nephew I reckon. I love the penants photo. What are they?

      That’s a very good question…and I have no idea what the answer is. Hmmmm, maybe my Captain knows?…I’ll ask him

    Great blog entry. Absolutely loved it. Terrific humor mixed with weather analysis. Loved it. And of course I am partial to the ending.
