Meanwhile back at the ranch

Visibility's dropped to near-zero Thermometer's plummeting too Ocean tempest tossing and turning Spraying the nerves of the crew Deck swabbed by torrential rain Passengers hunkered down below Afternoon's slipped into deep shadows Danger's pulse glowers and grows... Back on shore, weather's sunny Gentle breezes, calm and warm Ignorance is sheerest bliss When it comes to cruel ocean storms

Got a little seasick. Great imagery, Gershon. I'll stick to the rocky shore.
