Weather Window

Man plans and the gods laugh. We were all set to leave Vero today, stop at Nettles Island to see some friends tonight and go to West Palm on Sunday and leave for the Bahamas on Monday. However, I listened to Chris Parker this morning on the SSB (single sideband radio...short wave) who reported that there will be a cold front developing on Monday with squall winds up to 40 knots (35 knots is the lower limits of a GALE). Not a good thing to be caught with, especially in the middle of the gulf stream, and I would prefer to stay on a mooring at Vero than be anchored in the West Palm anchorage. Oh well. Maybe we will leave on Tuesday. This is not a plan, mind you...only a goal.
