Wild Windy Weather

Our lights have been flickering every once in a while and I'm seeing via Twitter that parts of Queen Anne and Magnolia have had power outages.   West Seattle Blog reports a tree is down in The Junction.  

Luckily we have low tides right now or we would probably be issuing a "barking dog report" warning of potential significant water issues that are a part of living on Beach Drive.   Our local weather station on Beach Drive has reported wind gusts up to 46 mph tonight.   Weather like this serves as an excellent reminder to make sure you're prepared for big storms.

Here's the current report from the City of Seattle:

TONIGHT…WINDY. RAIN THIS EVENING…THEN SHOWERS LIKELY AFTER MIDNIGHT. LOWS IN THE 40S. SOUTH WIND 20 TO 30 MPH BECOMING SOUTHWEST 15 TO 20 MPH AFTER MIDNIGHT.
