We had snow today so I am happy she is winterized and put to bed for the winter. I would rather be on the lake but it is way too cold.

I worked in Emmelord (SP) a few years ago for a company called Geesink and I do not think it gets as cold there as it does here. The weather was much more damp as I remember. The entire summer I was in the Netherlands I never got onto the water other than a river tour boat.

Those photos of you shoveling the snow off of your 2400 SC3 Ed, I was doing exactly the same thing last Thursday (Christmas eve). We received about 18 inches of snow here in the Washington DC area. I should have taken some pictures of it. Sure am glad I decided to buy a cover for the boat.

I much prefer this picture though. Taken this past September. We put the boat in the water are were waiting on some friends, who were running very late, to join us so we were just killing time tied up at the dock next to the ramp. Ahhhh, can't wait until summer comes back!

Ed,

Nice photos of the snow. Here is SoCal I wasn't shoveling snow last weekend but rather was on the lake relaxing while the admiral took the helm. Don't mean to rub it in.....as a matter of fact.....it had to be only about 62F!!!

Happy New Year

about 15000 people are skeating from the one to the other little village in about 12 to 14 hours....i'll keep you informed with foto's if that will happens.........

Christmas day here in Portland was warm and beautiful so I thought I would have my boat pulled out of rack storage and put into the water so we could take a quick cruise. I called the marina and found that because of the holidays and the upcoming boat show, they require a weeks notice before putting the boat in the water. Good Grief! I never know what the weather is going to be like a week from now. I'll be glad when Spring comes and I can leave my boat in the water.

five day's ago al the snow that fell after christmas was gone so here in the netherland we thougt.....okay that was our winter.....but yesterday started snowing again so everything is white again.....our dog can't find grass again to poop and pee on, so she is very confused where to drop it.......

and our weatherman tells us that within two or three days there will be much more snow, so big traffic problems, disabeled economy etc etc ( we knew this winters in the 60's but not now anymore)

i dont know what the world leaders have spoken about at the climat conference in kopenhagen last year.......but one thing i know...... it's working (fun fun)
