Jerry / 9 degrees
It's cold outside, but it's warm in my shop. I've been adding rigging to run a symetrical spinnaker. I still need a pole and a halyard. It will be ready for spring, and I'll be ready for some downwind fun.
Stupid Cold Outside

Jerry - 9degrees outside
Last year at this time, Debbie and I were in Key West for Christmas. That was a blast, and a nice break in the middle of winter. I've been trying to find a job there ever since. :)
Today though, I'm home. The lake is frozen and it's just cold and windy. The trees are covered in ice, and probably will remain that way through Christmas.
I work in the automotive supplier industry, and with all the uncertainty we decided to stay home this year. Hopefully this time next year we can be sailing in warmer waters.
