    In that case, this site will lose about 1/2 its membership. It is still about sailing there, you can still get very good information about a staggering number of sailing related topics from people...

    Going to be a long day. Beer cans tonight in Detroit, then drive over to the left coast for an overnight delivery to Chicago for Verve. Caffeine is your friend.

    This is Lake Michigan. Anything can happen in any given set of conditions. Add to that some strange weather patterns the last month or so, and DD is spot on.

    Sorry, but no. There are not enough wind sensors on either Mac course to be used effectively, not the way the fleet spreads out and the different conditions at different parts of the courses. Add...

    Oh, I did, after a fashion, 1/2 plywood shard and duct tape. I use the shovel too, but 8" of wet snow is a PITA to shovel, plus I did a bunch of the neighbors as well.

    Now that we have bunch of snow on the ground, it will warm into the 40s next week, and all melt. At least I'll find my snow thrower key quicker than I thought. :-)

    DD, I am on a brewery owner's boat for the race. Beer supply is most definitely not going to be a problem. You may want the growler drop the other way.
