What I was doing 3:00 a.m. this morning…the wild weather continues

Our house was up after hearing enough water come over the bulkhead…debating just how long can you stall before you prep for a storm?   It was another close call for us.  This one being the closest.   We did have several significant waves come over the bulkhead but none that our sub-pump couldn’t manage.

The videos are a little dark (it was around 2:30 a.m. — 2 hours before high tide).   It gives you an idea of what it was like last night.   It’s really hard to capture the exhilaration…especially when it’s pitch black outside.   This is from our deck looking down at the bulk head and our driveway:

This video is standing in our driveway:

One of our neighbors was very kind to come over to see if we needed any help (at 2:30 in the morning).   He’s an angel.

Our next high tide as a 10.3 at 1:40 pm (around when the Hawks game starts) and the current marine forecast is:

…GALE WARNING REMAINS IN EFFECT UNTIL 2 PM PST THIS AFTERNOON…

TODAY…SW WIND 25 TO 35 KT. WIND WAVES 4 TO 6 FT. SHOWERS AND ISOLATED THUNDERSTORMS.

TONIGHT…SW WIND 15 TO 25 KT DIMINISHING. WIND WAVES 2 TO 4 FT. SHOWERS LIKELY.

The Seattle forecast warns of windgusts up to 50 mph (not to mention that snow is hinting of showing up this weekend):

…WIND ADVISORY IN EFFECT UNTIL 10 AM PST THIS MORNING…

TODAY…SHOWERS AND ISOLATED THUNDERSTORMS. WINDY. HIGHS IN THE 40S. SOUTH WIND 25 TO 35 MPH WITH GUSTS TO 50 MPH. WINDS DIMINISHING IN THE AFTERNOON.

Let’s hope that Mother Nature leaves our power on so we can all watch and cheer for the Seahawks from the warmth of our homes.
