Snowing and blowing. 6 foot snow drift in front of the living room window, blocking view of Lakeshore Drive and Lake Superior. A good day to sit by the upstairs fireplace and read. Book of the day: The Boy, Me And The Cat by Henry M. Plummer. A classic story of of the passage of the catboat MASCOT (LOA 24-6, LWL 23, Beam 10 and Draft 3-6) from New Bedford to Florida and back, October, 1912 to June, 1913. On board: Henry M. Plummer, Henry M. Plummer Jr. and Scotty. I should note that they arrived at the Indian River Narrows on the morning of Feb. 20th. And later that day got gas in Fort Pierce.
