It's about this time of year that folk around here in Rhode Island start talking about how damn long the winter has been. It seems like we have been enduring too many months of freezing weather and snow storms and blizzards and power cuts and icy rain and fog and other shit and gale force winds and days I didn't go sailing on account of the cauldron of death and destruction, and didn't we even have at least one hurricane too?
"Enough!" we cry. "Isn't February over yet? When will it be Spring?"
It sure does feel like February is the longest month.
It's about this time of year that a short break away to somewhere warmer to do some sailing in sunshine and warm water would be really really appreciated.
For example, just for the sake of argument, just in case any of my friends feel the same as me, here is what the weather forecast for Clearwater Beach, Florida looks like next week...
Hmmm. I think I could put up with that.
