Yeah, and we just waxed the ENTIRE boat before we put it back in on Sunday. Talk about bad timing

At least we've had a pretty good run so far this summer. That report looks like EVERY report for the weekend last year.

May be a good weekend to go boat shopping. I haven't been able to take the time since I have actually been boating.

It's incredible! People are already in a panic down here. The stores and gas stations are packed, over a friggen storm with 45 MPH winds! Now because of this "hurricane", we're going too have to run double shifts for the next 2 days and have all my guys on call over the weekend. That means Loto is out for me. I'm so pissed.
