Short Therapy
Short Cure
I was able to take my Romany to the pool this past Sunday, and what a joy that was. There were few sea kayakers, so there was plenty of room to roll, brace and screw around. I was actually doing C-C rolls, something I have avoided in the past. I was also able to pull off my other side sweep rolls.

Flash ahead to today, and the cure has worn off. The temps aren't supposed to go above freezing this week, so it is unlikely any launch sites will open. Oh well.

Paddle safe...

Silbs, I am in the same situation as you are.
Sea kayaking, especially rolling, is going to be on hold for a while, unless done in a pool.
Nothing is frozen over here but paddling in debris laden water and rolling is out of question until flood waters will clear. The whole bay is terribly brown and all sort of trash (once people belongings) are seen floating around.

We have been following the flood up here and, I must say, the pictures look devestating. I am sadden by the loss of life and, now, what you describe has happened to the environment. Hopefully, Mother Nature will heal all this. Stay safe, Gnarly.
