Freezing bloody cold!

December 20, 2008

For some reason or other we thought that it would be a great idea to go visit Kristen's parents in Vermont over Christmas. Why didn't someone remind us that Vermont in winter is freezing cold, snowy and darker than the devil's heart?!? Not the place to be for two thin skinned Caribbean sailors. Oh well, we'll just have to cozy up to the wood stove and down some tasty microbrews to take the edge off.

We got 8 inches of snow overnight, and the "winter storm of the season" is hitting tomorrow we hear. But hey, we've got hot running water (showers!), good food and even an outdoors hot tub to enjoy, so it is hard to complain too loudly.

Meanwhile back in the Caribbean, Hans' friend Fredrik and his buddies from Uppsala, Sweden, are keeping an eye on Whisper and enjoying the Virgin Islands. Just watch out for Kit Kat guys!
