PacNW Weather Bomb on Monday

Looks like we're going to have another one! Check your dock lines/moorings! Things are going to get nasty around Whidbey, the Straits, and N Vancouver Is.

Re: PacNW Weather Bomb on Monday

Things are rocking good out here. Saw 40 knts on the meter but I know some gusts were way over that. It is very interesting when one has to hang on to the bed while tied up in a marina. lol

A sure sign that spring in on it's way, except for the snow forcast for tonight and it's cold. Yesterday we had 49 kt breezes luckly we were out sailing early and got back to our dock before it hit.

Re: PacNW Weather Bomb on Monday

Two semi-permanent tent buildings. They've been there 20 yrs so the end caps are a bit environmentaly challenged shall we say... Most of the flap zippers are toast so we use a lot of Gorilla tape and visqueen to seal them up for paint.

Re: PacNW Weather Bomb on Monday

Re: PacNW Weather Bomb on Monday

Still pouring rain here in Everett. Had a few hours break yesterday afternoon w/some sun, so cut the grass moss. It was so thick deep I could hardly push the mower. It was more like mowing snow. I even left footprints and tire tracks behind.
