Not A Day For Boating

Post by WildCat » Sat Apr 14, 2018 6:24 pm

I don't remember a day that was this bad :
LMZ741-742-142145-
Wilmette Harbor to Northerly Island-
Northerly Island to Calumet Harbor-
904 AM CDT Sat Apr 14 2018

GALE WARNING IN EFFECT THROUGH SUNDAY MORNING


REST OF TODAY
Northeast gales to 45 kt. A few storm force
gusts to 50 kt are possible. A few showers. Waves 10 to 14 ft
occasionally to 18 ft building to 12 to 16 ft occasionally to 21
ft in the late morning and afternoon.
My friend just put his boat in a few days ago, guess he'll be staying in the harbor this weekend. Having a friend with a boat, btw, is far superior to having your own boat.
Do you have questions about God?

Except that you're the pussy who free-loads. :De_Bunk: That's gotta be a great feeling.
You can lead them to knowledge, but you can't make them think.

Yes, as a former boat owner who now just has friends with boats, yes it is.

Six baseball games were canceled today too. Mostly in the Midwest.
