Stamford is just a short distance from New York City. Since weather usually travels from west to east, what they get, we get. NYC usually gets about 20 inches of snow a year. We got that in the first snowfall!
This week really took the cake. A six inch snowfall on Monday followed by a foot and a half on Wednesday. It was pretty heavy stuff as well, so after shoveling off the decks, I decided I had better shovel off the roof before the boat capsized.
Here's a pic of the aft deck. Yes, that's a broken rocking chair.
And here's what the bow looked like. The bump at the pointy end is the windlass.
Pam started shoveling first.
And then I did the aft deck and the roof.
Do we still enjoy living aboard? I briefly pondered this yesterday. I was using the PC in the helm station. I looked out over the bow and saw Hooded Mergansers diving for their dinner as a parade of Canadian Geese paddled by, while overhead Seagulls were swirling about. The sun was setting and it was gorgeous. My answer is yes.
I then asked Pam if she still enjoyed living on the boat. A smile came to her face and she said "Most girls wouldn't like it, especially having to go up the dock to the showers. But I LOVE IT!"
What a gal.
