Who pissed off the weatherman?

This is the rain as seen from the weather radar on the internet...

This is what the rain looks like from Moonshadow's radar...
This is what the rain looks like from Moonshadow's cockpit...
Based upon the evidence, we're pretty convinced it's raining.  And we think this has been going on for three days.  We've also gotten wind that blows a quite docile 7 or 8 knots then suddenly gusts to 24, healing Moonshadow at her berth here at the boatyard, making you feel drunk down below. But we're not complaining.  After all, we could be in a sketchy sleepless anchorage or making a nasty passage out in the Atlantic.  Not us, we're at the boat yard.  Woo Hoo.

Yesterday, we dodged the weather long enough to go to the movies to watch "Hunger Games" then have drinks along the river where Moonshadow had days before navigated upstream through downtown Ft. Lauderdale.  We were sipping cocktails and meeting a really mellow Golden-Doodle service dog named "Hey Jude" who made us long for Casey, when along came a Mega Yacht getting towed downstream through the Andrews Avenue Bascule Bridge.  Wow.

Ok, it's not exotic, but this is the cruising life for us for the next week or two, while we bet on the "now" side of the "pay-me-now or pay-me-later" boat maintenance proposition.  Nice that we're getting all this crappy weather out of the way while we're at it!  Those of you who come to visit Moonshadow and enjoy great weather can thank us later!
