There's a lot of weather out there. Some of the waves pounding us are smashing down into the galley. The soles are slick with sea water and anything slightly loose is banging up a storm. Though I went through and sea-stowed everything before we left, I had to do some rearranging today, and stuff a layer of rags between the glass bowls and another between the cutting boards. Without Ol' Dies, my only cooking options are the hot plate and the convection oven. The hot plate is a joke in these seas. I'd basically have to hold the pot on it the whole time - and if I lost control because I couldn't keep my balance, it would be a disaster. So I made everything in the electric oven.
Today Bly said he recorded our fastest speed ever and didn't realize it until Smith asked him: 14.1 knots.
Apparently there are possibilities of tornados and strange stuff tonight. I can hear the rain just starting. It's going to be messy on deck.
