Ice is not nice (part 4 of the trilogy)

 On our way up north. Cutting through rime ice sounds much like standing directly behind a jet engine.
Sleep deprived.

I was on a reserve can at Ft. Schuyler New York from to 76-78. The East River had frozen up quite a bit once and we had to break through ice to get away from the pier. In the forward engineroom, Main Control, the fire pump suction line was heavily iced all the way to the pump, and the inlet to the main condenser was also heavily iced. I have never seen that before, or since.

Sucks to be you right now. It's hot and humid in the S. Pacific. Be safe.

Todd, I'd rather be here. No issues with having to haul back a 2-mile length of CTD cable with more assholes than Congress itself to sort through.
Plus, the diaper rash. I'd be doing the cowboy shuffle for months if I was out there!

Finally.
