Waiting on the Weather

Sunday, June 06, 2010S.V. CAMBRIA

It's been fairly quiet aboard Cambria this past week but that could change very soon. With the majority of work done, we're now looking at the weather and will drop our lines as soon as things settle down a bit which could be as early as Monday or Tuesday. At this point, it's difficult to say because the forecasts from NOAA are all over the place, as is the weather. According to the local newspaper, this May was the third worst in 25 years with June looking like it's going to bring more of the same. I guess the old joke that summer doesn't begin in Puget Sound until the fifth of July is based in truth after all. I just hope the punch line isn't that it ends on the sixth!

We've seen enough sun over the past few days to get a feel for how the solar panels are going to perform. At first glance, it looks like we're going to be very happy, and they'll be able to handle our energy needs under decent conditions. If that's the case, it'll be a great change from last season when David spent up to four hours a day tied to the boat in order to charge the batteries.
