I am really not sure about this one, maybe I should whimp out and put it into handwriting help, or put it straight into the mondegreens but I am going for it. http://oldweather.s3.amazonaws.com/ADM53-38067/C2-ADM53-38067-0167_1.jpgDoes the 0.5 entry really say "Observed Lemon rainbow to northward."??I know it is midnight: I know there is no rain about I know there arent lemon rainbows, but I cannot make it say anything else. A truely remarkable natural phenomenon if that is what it says.
It looks like 'Limon' to me rather than 'Lemon' but this is no help at all. A lemon rainbow is such a beautiful concept that I really want it to be that .... We need Bunts and his forensic eye for handwriting on this one I think.
The other serious concern in this type of weather is icing. http://www.weather.nps.navy.mil/~psguest/polarmet/vessel/description.htmlThis is a comprehensive summary of the conditions needed for icing, and the weather in Virginians log seem perfect. K
