I finally had time to get out on the boat so I checked the radar and it looked good. All New England was clear, as a matter of fact the whole northeast looked clear. I board the boat and remove all the side curtains, check all the systems including checking the bilge and make sure the pump is working. As I was going through my routine I hear thunder off into the distance! How could this be? About 15 minutes earlier the weather radar was clear as a bell! I take out my cell phone and bring up the radar app. At first as it's loading nothing but soon all these green spots are popping up about 10 miles west of me then start to enlarge and become red and yellow! I hesitate and hold off for about 5 minutes then figure I'd at least start the engine and give the new battery a charge. I look at the radar again and notice the storm is heading just south of Cape Ann. With that I cast off and motor through Smith Cove.
