Blowin' Like Hell
I was in Shilshole yesterday to finish the installation of my autopilot (and the CYC Wed night chili feed!). The overnight forecast for North Sound and the San Juans was for rain and wind with gusts to 40 knots, but when I got up, it was calm w broken clouds and occasional mist. I decided NWS had blown the forecast and set out for Port Townsend.
Well, the forecast was just 12 hours late, and caught up with me about 20 minutes before arrival... Grabbed the fuel dock just inside the entrance, where I'm still pinned by the wind. Fuel guy says, "no worries, I'm not expecting a lot of demand."
