Oh hell no. I know its not much but it is snow and its freakin' me out. Is it Winter getting it out of its system or could it be a harbinger of whats to come. Either way, I don't like it.
In the middle of winter work is slow enough that we've had to lay a couple of people off. Less work means we need less parts so yes, this week I had to lay my wife, the parts queen off. Crap. It should only be for a few weeks so things could be worse.
Since we're here for the winter I decided to catch up on my dental care. Ughh, I'm halfway through $4000 in repairs.
In spite of the weather, layoffs and dental issues things aren't really too bad. The engine room walls have been reinsulated, the new engine is ordered and will arrive on schedule, the new mainsail is being built and the crew seems to enjoy our winter digs.
