The Fourchon Weather Service

Even if you are too lazy to look for a weather forecast, there are certain indicators that the winter weather has arrived, and it is getting nasty offshore. The wind starts out of the north, 15-20 steady, it cools off, and the sky just has that look to it. However I think the best indicator is what kind of boats are in town. Today we have been docked at Baroid on the bayou and it has been a steady stream of four point anchor dive boats coming in all morning. Next comes the sub sea IMR vessels, and when crew boat row is full, that means grocery runs for boats like us.
