18 November 2010 | I'm not sure
Weather plays a huge part of a sailors life, as I am preparing to leave on my mini cruise I started following the weather forecasts about a week ago, as I get closer to leaving I get almost glued to the marine weather reports. Now lets make it real clear that these guys don't really know what the weather is going to be, my friend Russ Carlson was in the Coast Guard and they sent him to what he refers to as "weather guesser school", now I know that in the 60+ years since Russ was in the guard that the weather guessing has become much better....but yesterday I did not see anything about fog....and as you can see (pic) there is very dense fog here in Coronado right now. I do have to hand it to the guessers that the "forecasts" right at this moment do call for "dense fog this morning" Duh.
I am getting close to having to make a decision about when I leave for Mission Bay, I would like to be there for the Monday night Charger game.. the current weather guessing is calling for "showers" on Sunday....Russ was going to go with me, but knowing that Russ is a fair weather sailor I may have to single hand it on Sunday.....but that wouldn't be all that bad...more practice...or I could wait until Monday "partly cloudy" and leave early so I don't miss any of the Chargers action. Decisions, decisions....Did I mention what a GREAT life this is?
PS I know that Russ doesn't follow my blog....if he for some reason starts now I may be single handing anyway..LOL.
