Waves spraying over bulkheads… and we’re hours away from high tide.

This is looking like the storm we were worried about when we prepared our “barking dog” report a few days ago. We have waves slamming our bulkhead with spray as tall as our home. I can see flashes on the islands across the sound – I’m assuming folks may be losing power. We have our dog in his kennel just to make sure he doesn’t escape in this mess.

High tide is a 12.9 at 8:17 am.

Here’s the updated forecast we’re looking at this morning.
