If you just can't stay OFF the water tomorrow then, for goodness sakes, don't forget the sea anchor! In rough weather I always throw mine out when in my float tube.:dance::D

two days ago here at the Chemical Depot just West of Hermiston Oregon on I-84 we had sustained wind at 40+ miles per hour with gusts to 60+ along with some rain squals.... and I was at work and didn't have my camera (dangit.... ) it sure was pretty with the lighting the way it was.

Just blowing through

Just blowing through

I couldn't keep my peepers shut this morning so I got up around 2:30 and made some coffee. :shock: While sitting here staring at the 'puter screen,the wind started picking up. The windows started rattling like dice in a Yahtzee cup. It lasted for about 45 minutes and then settled down for a few hours. According to the weather folks the nasty shouldn't get here in Dallas until about the time I have to go see my doc. Maybe I'll just spread my arms and blow right into the office and leave the wheel chair at home...:lol: :yay:

Here's the latest:

Winds in the
interior lowlands including the Portland metropolitan area will likely gust
to 55 miles per hour at times along and behind the cold front midday today and
this afternoon. Convective mixing behind the front will help
transport strong 50-60 knots winds just above the surface down to the
surface at times…especially in and near showers.

Air mass becomes increasingly unstable today behind the front. This
is evident on visible satellite with all the speckled clouds behind
the front. With the very strong winds just above the surface…we
have to watch for the slight potential of severe thunderstorm wind
gusts this afternoon…especially if there is any organization to
storms that may develop.
