Official Barking Dog Report: Nasty Wind and Waves

Latest Puget Sound Marine Forecast:

…GALE WARNING NOW IN EFFECT UNTIL 5 AM PDT TUESDAY…

TONIGHT…SW WIND 25 TO 35 KT BECOMING N 10 TO 20 KT NORTH PART AT TIMES. WIND DIMINISHING LATE TONIGHT. WIND WAVES 4 TO 6 FT EASING TO 2 FT LATE. SHOWERS AND A CHANCE OF THUNDERSTORMS.

My first report from the Marine Forecast was that the gale warning would last until 11 Istock_000002610704medium_1 tonight (just prior to our high tide of 11:21 pm).  In light of how nasty this has been and that the wind and waves are still going strong, I think this justifies a "barking dog" report.

The City of Seattle says things will lighten up after midnight:

REST OF TONIGHT…WINDY. SHOWERS THIS EVENING…THEN NUMEROUS SHOWERS AFTER MIDNIGHT. LOWS IN THE 40S. SOUTHWEST WIND 20 TO 30 MPH WITH GUSTS TO 40 MPH THIS EVENING…DECREASING TO 10 TO 20 MPH AFTER MIDNIGHT.

To be on the "safe side" we are dragging out our pumps and preparing for worse case scenario.   What are you doing?
