Looks like there will be lots of deadheads in northwest waters after tomorrow

All the flooding will certainly flush a lot of logs out of the rivers. Anyone boating out there in the next couple weeks keep a sharp lookout.

We rode the ferry over to Whidbey Island on Saturday to attend a symphony concert and visit friends. The beach beside the ferry landing at Clinton has rows of large logs above the high tide line where they have been washed up by past storms. The tide was so high some of the logs were starting to float off the beach.

On Sunday we drove up to Bellingham to make sure our boat, which was at the shipyard's dock prior to being hauled out again this week, was weathering the high winds okay. When we crossed the Stillaguamish and Skagit rivers, both were very high and while there was not a lot of debris floating down there was some including a few good size trees.

There is a ton of material heading out the door from the Fraser. Along with a new selection of materials on the beach. Watched a tug shred a rather large log, slowed him up quite a bit. Enough so that the barge he was towing almost ran the tug over. Actually I get to see lots of interesting log verses marine machines here on the booming grounds. The logs definitely win their share of battles, best to keep eyes wide open.
