I stopped with my wife and dog. Note that she made me promise never to sail those conditions by myself, so think twice if you are curious when passing Rooster on a windy day...

I always find it morbidly comical, when someone thinks another
person on the river in those conditions will protect you. I guess
it's possible, but dragging someone in, in those conditions is really unlikely
to succeed, calling the authorities might get a boat out in time to recover
the body. I guess I'm saying that in January, in that much wind, relying
on anyone other than yourself, is a delusion.

I noticed the Rooster sensor seems to be reading correctly again since Saturday afternoon. I wonder if it fixed itself or if IW found a crew willing to brave the 30 degree temps and 40mph winds to go out and repair it?
Either way it's great to have it back, although I don't plan to hit the water until the air temps are at least 50 degrees.

Once again, that looks more like punishment than fun.

More punishment than fun? Certainly there must have been a degree of both.
Maybe the lone windsurfer was serving out a penance.
