We have the most wonderful weatherman here in western Washington.
He's an avid blogger and not only is he entertaining,
he contributes boat loads of useful information;
often, nothing short of a compendium of
fascinating weather facts and details one has never heard of before.
So today I'm borrowing from this fine fella - Cliff Mass - because his latest post,
seemed to explain all the wild stuff I've been seeing recently
u p t h e r e
Unlike some of the other local forecasters who tend to concentrate more on
what's happening around Seattle,
Mr. Mass seems to [almost] always get it right when it comes to
us island folk further north "up-Sound."
Darn helpful when seawater is your highway.
As for that, sure is nice to have the ferry Captain do the driving out there ...
I love when you can see it raining miles off in the distance ...
dependent upon which way the wind is blowing,
you can know if it's coming right for you
Always good to know when a big storm's heading your way.
Wind gusts last night topped 50 mph, but we were ready for it.
The only casualty ... my old 3Gs iPhone finally bit the dust. Or should I say
in keeping with this post,
sailed her last voyage?
Trouble's been a'brewing for some time,
what with going all wonky at the most
then crashing every time I tried to take a picture.
I may have app-ed her to death [is that possible?]. My penchant for playing with effects
is no secret around here,
but whatever the cause, at last
I finally have the excuse I needed to upgrade.
