Since it is now Spring let us move on with boat projects and other things that occupy our time. Like Boat Projects. That’s it and there doesn’t need to be anything else because Boat Projects are comprehensive and exhaustive of our time (and exhausting).
The first day of Spring came and went. It was hard to tell because a good 4″ of heavy, wet, mushy snow fell. It dampened our chilled spirits and strengthened our resolve to sail South to warmer climes ASAP.
I may have mentioned how cold and nasty it is here. It is not (as many people have feared) because we are living on our sailboat. It is because it’s winter and New York winter is cold.
New York is really chapping my hide (although I still haven’t gotten past loving to hate it). As a West Coast transplant I am not in favor of extreme weather. Since moving here in 2011 we have suffered an earthquake, two hurricanes (true, one in North Carolina but we sure felt it in NYC), two tropical storms, one polar vortex, and Nor’Easters beyond my reckoning. Plus it’s sticky and gross in the summer.
