November 29th (yesterday)
-3 again last night, not what we wanted at all! More ice on top of the existing ice, no way could we even attempt to make a break. Really getting concerned now. Plenty of fresh water on board but never, have we ever, been in the situation with near full cassettes and nowhere to empty. Not even a convenient tree for hubby nearby without a bit of a trek. Will we have to resort to bucket and chuck it job? So hope not!! The only saving grace is the weather conditions are set to improve. No ice forecast for tonight and the temperature is already on the rise. Never have I been so glad to see the barometer record a temperature of 2.3.
|No fenders needed on this mooring.|
|Looks to be water but it is all ice.|
We have to go tomorrow regardless of conditions. Fingers crossed we make it out.
And the Buzzard was back on the pylons today.
