With the first high tide of 11.3 at 7:10 a.m. with low tide of -1.4 following at 2:00 pm and the next high tide of 11.2 at 9:06 pm… I think I'm going to call this my first official "Barking Dog" report.  (If you're new to BDB, consider a "Barking Dog Report" like your neighbors dog who's yapping when they're a bit concerned — all with good intentions).

The forecast that I've linked to are updated so please be sure to check back. 

Update 4/1/10 6:45 am:  here's a link to the National Weather Service which has a high wind watch for Seattle.
