Well, tough to make this sound overly exciting and fun. It admittedly is a bit closer to work right now.
We are making our way NNE through a trough of low pressure that is pushing North with us and giving us some nice Easterly winds.
Last night saw us working through several large squalls that I assume are a product of the clash between high and low pressure around us?? In any case, they were big ones. Avg. wind was 12-15, but when they came through there was 25-30 knots and unbelievable amounts of rain.
We saw about 4 of those. Then this morning broke nice and clear with 15 knots and lots of sunshine. We are only 250 miles north of HI and its still plenty hot.
Hoping the coming night is a bit easier on the crew. Will let you know tomorrow.
