11/17/2008: "It's getting colder"
Well the rain seems to want to let up. It seems like it has been raining for weeks. Unfortunately a cold front moved in and the temperatures are dropping. For some of you it may not sound too bad but we are looking at lows in the 30’s and one night is forecast to drop into the 20’s. Remember, we moved here to get away from the cold. This is more like what we expect to get in January.
The last of our “snowbirds” left this morning. We have four boats from our marina that have headed south for the winter. It is hard to call them snowbirds since we don’t normally get snow here. Dan left this morning on Marian Claire. Because of the weather we have had, south winds, the water is a little low in the creek and it took a bit for him to get started. He was aground as soon as he backed out of his slip. After a bit of maneuvering he was on his way, working down the ICW to Florida. Our turn will come.
