To Dive, or Not to Dive?

Here’s a few images of the weather conditions up here.  The snow is worse than it’s been in decades.  The water temperature is around 8C (46F).  The air temperature is 0C (32F), plus or minus a degree or two.  It alternately rains and snows, and the 40-70 knot winds whip the waves into a frenzy of streaking, foaming rollers, depositing a layer of salt foam on the beach.  If I jump and spread my arms, I get carried a few inches by the wind.

I got up early and drove to the dive shop, but we decided to call it.  Obviously!  Not really safe.  Or fun, in those conditions.
