Loving Spring in February
« on: February 05, 2019, 08:46:45 PM »
Last couple of days it's been close to 70 F in my area. Leading up to this, we had a stretch with highs in the teens and lows around 2 or 3 degrees at night.

It feels like spring in the middle of winter now. I want to ride, but there is still so much salt on the roads, so I won't bother. The next two days will rain and wash away the salt, but then it gets cold again. At least I'm not shoveling snow.   :001:

Same here at the moment, unseasonably warm with wall to wall sunshine. ( still not warm enough for me to unwrap the beast ).  And know doubt when I get ashore the weather will deteriorate back to normal.

I skipper a wind farm support vessel. A few wind farms up around your neck of the woods. Are you deep sea or as the name suggests coasters ?
