February 21, 1918

Arose at 7 A.M., ate and turned to 8 A.M.

Worked until noon and turned in to bunk at 1 P.M.

Got out for “Abandon Ship” drill at 2 P.M.

Went back to bunk and stayed rest of day and that night.

Sea still very heavy; snow, rain and sleet squalls all day.

Ran slow all night so would not pass convoy in the storm.
