Weather Changes, and That Changes Everything

Checking the weather is a huge part of sailing! And it's no surprise that the weather on the Great Lakes changes very often and unexpectedly.


We've been watching the weather the past several days, in hopes of having a good window to set sail this past Saturday. There was indeed a small weather window, us being ready to go, however it diminished rather quickly, deciding it be prudent of us to stay as the winds are just too strong and weather too nasty to leave. As we are fine tuning the Gem, we are sitting at the dock, tied up, waiting...

Ever been in the army? Hurry up and wait was the saying way back when I was. 📅

Everything happens for a reason & this too shall pass. But DANG the wait…!!! Sigh. Well, make a Taco Bell run & enjoy a little more time on terra firma!😛
