Here's something that you probably don't think about when you're living ashore... The weather forecast has some decidedly cold (by Seattle standards, anyway) weather coming next week. Below freezing. So cold that water turns into... a solid!
And our water tanks are very low. Murphy says that we will run out of water aboard when the water hose on the dock is frozen solid. And when I am taking a shower. Murphy is such an SOB.
So this afternoor, while it is still warm (54°) outside, I filled our tanks. We now have 300+ gallons of water aboard, where Murphy can't get at it.
Crap - I can't believe I just said that. Now our water pump will probably fail.
