"Any damn fool can navigate the world sober. It takes a really good sailor to do it drunk." - Sir Francis Chichester when asked why he carried so much alcohol on his solo sail around the world.

I think that based on all of the pictures that I posted yesterday it may be time for NOAA to change the way that they determine ice coverage. Yesterday's pictures clearly show a LOT of ice from ports all over Lake Michigan, while NOAA claims that there is no ice in those same locations. Maybe next year for Christmas I'll give NOAA the links to the live web cams, some of which are NOAA cameras, that I use to study the ice coverage.

This sure backs up my belief that a window is more usefull than a computer when it comes to weather forecasting.
