Nor'easter season

I was on board yesterday with the sun shining and the temperature in the seventies. I woke up this morning to a cold raw easterly wind with a forecast of a nasty wet Saturday and possible gale warnings late Saturday. Welcome to the Nor'easter season which runs from September to April. NOAA has a little tutorial on what it's about that you can see here and an up close look at the Nor'easter made famous by Sebastion Junger in his book The Perfect Storm the anniversary of which will be coming up at the end of the month.

As for me I'm putting an extra line on the mooring.
