Running out of time

Fall is quickly approaching. I have not heard the dreaded travel lift yet, but quite a few boats have their sails removed, and are ready for the haul out. A quick count of cars in the parking lot this morning only revealed seven, so we are down to approximately seven live-aboard's at this point. We have an eighty degree day today, then this week a cold front moves in, and the high will struggle to reach sixty. Deb is very tuned to the weather, and I'm thinking that getting up at 4:45 AM to walk to the showers is not in her plans, when it's about 45 degrees. I might last a little longer, and get some stuff removed and organized for the winter months. Could this winter in Rochester NY be the last?

The solar panels have been doing a great job keeping the batt's charged, and the davits work great. So, at the boat show, I will be scoping out wind generators, alternator/regulators, windlass, and LED lighting. I will also be scoping out the Middleton tavern, McGarvey's, and the Rams Head  :)
