Looking at my 15 day forecast I may decide to uncover next week and launch the following week. That is if the forecast as it is now presented holds. Fingers are crossed.

Forecast has changed dramatically going from a foot of snow to only an inch or so and then lots of rain on Monday. I normally do not launch until mid May so not feeling that bad yet. Problem is I need to do some work on her before launch and if mother nature does not behave mid May will be tough to achieve. Good news it looks like only 1 more week of sub normal temps and then it scoots up a bit.
Cheers, Hans

We got the foot of snow yesterday and there is some form of freezing rain / pellets or whatever falling now. The guy who does my snow removal over the winter has already removed the blower from his tractor so he won't be coming..... good thing we've got a 4WD truck.
The admiral is off to South Carolina to visit her sis on Tuesday. I noticed Hilton Head was sunny and 75 yesterday while watching the golf.

I may need therapy soon :banghead: :banghead: :banghead: :banghead:

If we are lucky perhaps this late arriving spring may mean an extended fall. One can certainly hope.
