What a killer day. Lot’s of rain and wind and nothin’ else. I was going the same speed as a barge so we stuck together through this crappy weather. Only he was sitting in a comfortable chair drinking hot coffee and I was looking like a drowned rat! I did run into a small problem that I won’t be able to sort out until tomorrow. I ran over a fishing net that was submerged in the water. It wrapped around my prop. I had to get in the water with my trusty knife and cut the net off. I felt a little like Tarzan-only cold! It started right back up so I went slowly to the shore for the night. I will check the oil in the morning and we’ll see how it goes.
Should be able to make it to the next lock tomorrow and to a reasonably sized town. After today, I wouldn’t mind taking it easy and eating at a restaurant. I’m having difficulties downloading pictures from my new camera but I will sort that out soon. Another day of rain tomorrow and then things should start clearing up-hope so.
