In the middle of the biggest storm of the year, your water tanks run low. So you have to go out and face 20+ kt out of the North, filled with stinging blowing snow (it doesn't show in the picture, does it?).
You have to hook up the very stiff hose to the dock hose bib.
You have to de-ice the hose - its full of ice, but not quite frozen solid (thank heavens!). For a while, it blows chunks like a little ice cannon.
And then finally you have to fill your tanks.
Your gloves are soaking wet. The wind chill on your hands is unbelievable.
And you know what? Even in this, it is still worth it.
I love living on a boat!
