Waves Gone Wild!

When will our weather lighten up a bit?  Geepers (as my Grandma Esther would barnacle that hit our bedroom window (about 20 feet high) say)!  Watching the early news this morning on King-5, snug as a bug, I was dismayed to hear that we are set to have a series of storms this week…and so here we are with non-stop wind and waves.  It’s gorgous to look at as long as the waves stays over on the water side of the bulkhead!   Today is supposidly just the start…Wednesday night to Thursday morning (from what I understand) is suppose to be the big whopper of wind storms.  It’s a bit too early for me to post a “barking dog” report…but it’s never too early for a concerned dog to pace around a bit.    Especially if you consider that we’re having high tides just over 12 feet this entire week…WOOF!

In fact, according to the local Beach Drive “weather station” we’ve had gusts up to 56 mph today.   The photo is of a barnacle that splashed about 20 feet high onto our bedroom window!
