It has been nice not worrying about tropical weather development since T/S Bonnie, sort of like a mental nap.  But nap time is over, the tropical weather is back in the news with two systems worth watching.  They are still a long ways off and may not effect us at all.  But we will be watching them closely.

At this point, the closer system is forecasted as having less chance of development and has not been formally classified as a tropical wave.

Yesterday was very quiet here both weather-wise and programatically.  So I took a little time to clean the hoses and tubing in the salon air conditioner on Escape and Capt. Rich went lobstering for dinner at Capt. Carol’s request.

DON’T TELL ANYONE, BUT TODAY IS CAPT. CAROL’S BIRTHDAY.  SHE SEEMS TO BE VERY SHY OF THIS REALITY.  HAPPY BIRTHDAY CAROL.  NOW GET BACK TO WORK!

I’m running short on time this morning.  I did not receive any updates from the Jambo staff so I’m sure they are very busy and having a great time.

  1. John Dobson says:

    Just a reminder to all Staff: don’t stick your pinkie finger into a hermit crab’s home. The pincher claw will create a blood blister on the end of one’s finger. It seems to hurt a lot. Dunking the attched hermit crab into salt water will only made the hermit crab squeze tighter thusly hurting more. Shaking the crab appears to make the crab more angry. Also–when screaming for help from Captain Dennis don’t scream “Captain Steve!! Captain Steve!! Hellp! Get this thing off me! Help!” Be aware of the rescuer’s name. Also, I, John Dobson, would like to personally and publically thank Boat Mate Dan for leaping to my assistance with his Spyderco knife. I did believe he was going to cut my pinkie off, but he attacked the claw. And thanks to Program Office Manager Ellen for her sympathies. And thanks to all the Staff at the July 31st Staff Meeting for their kind comments and subdued laughter. Also thanks go to Captain Rich who reminded me “If you aren’t going to be smart…you’ve got to be tough.”
