It is a lot quieter than expected. We are on the water, on Houston Passage. Our peak windspeed to now(20:00) has been under 35 knots. At high tide, a couple of hours ago the surf was pounding parts of the beach that hadn't seen water since last winter. The mooring bouy was rising and falling about 4 feet.

A Mayday was in progress in Fulford Harbour for a kayaker in the water. Why would a guy go out when the forecast was for up to 55 knots of wind, in a bay exposed directly to the direction of that high wind? He was recovered successfully.

Because some people are a special kind of stupid. I saw windsurfers and kayakers on the news tonight!

I just got up ... Watching Fareed Zakeria on GPS w the one and only Bill Mahr.

I think the wind fizzled(hope) but we're up in the hidden valley. Often the wind goes right over us. Depends on the direction. Tell me it fizzled. We're still an area of benign weather it seems. A bit too much heat in the summer for me though.

The big wind failed to materialize. The highest we saw was under 35 knots, just before dark. After dark the noise of the wind gradually lessened till bed time, and never disturbed us. Awoke to under 10 knots and gentle rain this morning. I will move my boat back to its regular dock later today.

After the kayaker Mayday in Fulford Harbour at 18:10, no further rescue activity near Saltspring Island..

Why would anyone watch those two clowns? LOL!

Wind didn't hit LaConner much either, just breezy, still is this am. Not raining anyway.

78,
We lost half of a mid sized tree.
Won't rebuild either.
