Check out this article about the Annapolis liveaboards: http://www.baltimoresun.com/news/maryland/bal-md.boat11feb11,0,195495.story
You have to respect people who stick it out through blizzards on their boats.
Me? Well... I'm home with my parents. But I was super sick too and I needed my mommy. Yes. I was that sick. So... yeah. I need to go and shovel off the boat and check on her as soon as I get my car dug out. Really I should check her once a week, but it's averaging out way less and I'm just counting on the marina owners to check on her. It is not a short trip out there and there's not enough daylight to do it after work anymore.
Excuses, excuses, right?
