SF Bay Area Weather

It looks like a big storm is headed into the Bay Area. No time to do a run up the coast. 8 meter seas off the BC Coast so it will move about another 1000 miles stirring up things. It appears to be something Kevin is sending your way Al, Craig and Mark.

SF Bay Area Weather

Every 5-6 years we have to have a "storm of the century", apparently this is the week. I took the angel and reindeer off the lawn and retracted the patio umbrella. Playing it by ear to see if it's worth putting away the patio furniture. FEMA will pay for the rest

Yes this looks like a doozy. They forecast 21-23' seas off the WA coast, 16+ in the straight, and then the wind waves in Admiralty, the San Juans, and even down the Sound expected to be up to 9'. Biggest I've seen predicted since I have been paying attention for sure.

The legend is, when you get a big blow on the B.C. coast, between the Queen Charlotte Islands (Haida Gwaii) and the mainland, you can see the bottom in the troughs!

Forecasting high winds

TAKING OFF MY SUMMER CANVAS TOMORROW, Damn looks like will get some of that water back that LA and the Southland wants so badly. Probably a good time to double up dock lines, maybe if your boat is exposed to provide some chafe protection as well. I'm docked in current so drifting trees and such can be a problem. Good time to check for leaks. If anybody has been crossing the Antioch bridge, there has been a constant stream of water hyison ( PROBABLY MISSPELLED) under the bridge. Ladds and River point have cleaned out as of a couple of days ago. With all the hype in the news about this storm and the highway warnings of eminent doom, Do you really think we will actually have a dangerous event this Thursday? Tahoe anyone?

I get a kick out of the weather stations in the Bay Area. They have Storm Tracker Alerts when it rains and now they are talking about the Storm of the Century. Why ? Because we don't get much change in our weather. Hell we'll go 180 days without rain. So now that they have something to talk about it leads the newscast. Having lived in New England, Chicago, Memphis, Norfolk and spending some time in Florida, this storm would be line 8 in the news.

I agree with Scary that logs floating down the river might be a problem, but the wind and rain anywhere else would be almost normal. As for Tahoe I say bring on the snow. I was up there snow skiing last week and it was pretty sad, they need all the snow they can get. 2-3 feet from this storm and another few few next week would be about perfect.

Yup, the weather heralders are having a field day predicting gloom and doom. They live for storms like this!

No doubt, there will be localized puddles...some even reaching into some poorly placed or poorly protected homes. I have great confidence that the junior members of the media will be there en masse to bring the spectacle into each dry living room while the seasoned 'experts' remain indoors.

Sure hope my boat doesn't get wet!!

Winds from the SSE 15 kts with gusts to 30 at my marina (off the port bow). I'm pondering dropping the bimini for the first time, but it's withstood 35G45 in the past.

Geeze, we have 15-30 kts winds from November through to April. When it snows, as much accumulates on the sides of trees and buildings as the ground. You guys are whimps.

Us too! I dock in that kind of wind probably every other time I bring her in!

We have a Christmas Boat Parade on Sunday. The storm could screw it up.

We didn't used to be wimps until we moved to California! Then most of us forgot what real weather is like! In fact, I'm a bit chilled right now as I type this. It's 59 degrees outside/68 degrees inside. I think I'll break out my sweaters!!

I shoveled more than my share of snow growing up in Chicago. Then I moved out west for college and have never owned a snow shovel in my adult life. I'd like to keep it that way!

Hyacinth Report

Went to the boat for a couple of days.
I thought I might get a chance to take her out for some exercise, but no way.

First picture is from my slip, into A dock fairway.
Second is looking North up the main fairway to marina entrance.
Third is a log that floated in.

Probably just as well I stayed put.
Spoke to the marina folks about it, but they did not seem to care much. No one really trying to get in or out anyway, and their fuel is much too high these days to attract buyers.

[Craig, just noticed when I went to post this that I do not seem to have permission to enter "Go Advanced" to post pictures in the SF Bay group, similar to that funky behavior I described to you that will not show the drop-down for the pages. Cannot be my Browsers because Everything else works as expected on TF.]

I hear ya, but we got about a foot of snow last night, the trees are all covered, and it's really quite beautiful. Personally, I like the variety. So Cal drove me crazy while we were commissioning our boat. Every day is the same.

That's funny . . . warmer here today, North of Seattle, than So Cal. . . 68F at 1200 today. Unfortunately, pounding rain and gusting winds to 40 here at the house right now and most of the rivers are reaching flood stage. . . . again!! Wonderful
