Barking Dog Report: High Winds and Waves

Istock_000002610704medium_1 West Seattle Blog just published a wind advisory from the National Weather Service from 10 pm tonight until 4 pm Monday.

The Barking Dog is published (since that’s what my husband affectionately calls me) when I’m concerned about the weather, waves…etc.   

Here are the current reports that I’m reviewing causing me to howl:
