Storm Front

We've got a low pressure system and a northeast breeze
We've got a falling barometer and rising seas
We've got the cumulonimbus and a possible gale
We've got a force nine blowing on the Beaufort scale
(Billy Joel - Stormfront)

We've done what we can.
We added a couple hundred feet more dock lines and Hammertime is almost in a hammock.
Certainly any spider would be proud of the web we created.
We went to town and bought beer, wine and rum.
Am I forgetting something, oh yes, we got food too.  Lots.
The holding tank is empty, the water tanks are full.
The batteries are charged and our diesel is topped up with a couple of extra jugs lashed to the boat.
We even did our laundry in anticipation of the power going out.

Now the hard part starts - we wait.....

There's a storm front coming
White water running and the pressure is low
Storm front coming
Small craft warning on the radio
(Billy Joel - Stormfront)


  1. Best sailing blog that has ever existed! Wish I met you folks at SJT.

  2. Did your laundry?

    It's Armageddon!
