Weather is all around us

Another Northern front arrives
Floating on our little island (boat) we are surrounded by nature's magnificence, beauty and power.
Everyday involves a careful consideration of weather, anchor location, physical safety, and contingency plans in the event that the weather changes suddenly.
In the city one has the ability to essentially ignore the weather, while here on the boat, we track it carefully and use our electronic instruments to tell us if it's changing, or we're moving.
With the overcast days the solar panels are falling behind, so we're hoping for a couple of sunny days to fully recharge the batteries, otherwise I'll have to breakdown and start the generator. It's nice to have redundant systems.
