And just leave it to the Knotty Cat to find a way to take advantage of it.
When we left our girl in Charleston, SC this fall we debated about whether to winterize her or not. And since we were (and still are) going to return to her at the end of December, before it really gets cold, we were advised not to.
Well guess what? Not only is it going to get cold this weekend, the temperatures are expected to plummet into the teens.
In South Carolina!
So not only did we suffer through the hottest summer on record this year, we are now experiencing the coldest it's not even winter yet on record.
After receiving a concerned call from the boat yard (where the Knotty Cat has been drying out) that they were expecting temperatures in the teens this weekend, we needed to make a decision. Should we just pay them to winterize her, or should we rent a vehicle (which we would need for at least three days) and drive down there and do it ourselves.
We would also need to decide whether Wilbur would made the trip with us or spend a few expensive days at Doggy Day Care where we've discovered he's hugely popular and always welcome.
In the end it was cheaper to have the yard do the work but what kills me is that it's only going to be needed for a total of three weeks!
Honest to God, three weeks!
Today we were informed that the Knotty Cat has been successfully winterized and I swear I can hear her purring all the way up here because yet once again, she's gotten her own way.
What a Prima Donna. She should give lessons!
