We were off the air for about three hours today due to high winds and a resulting power outage. All is well again, but you should see the waves breaking out on Elliot Bay!

90 mph gusts at airport

...or so I heard. Bly landed in the storm yesterday in a prop plane (I can't believe they were landing in it!) and said it was incredibly bad. The las time I saw a wind storm like that here was a few years ago on Thanksgiving... and it was worse in some ways because it came on a relatively warm, sunny day, and caught a lot of pleasure boaters out on the sound. We had several sailors run to my marina for emergency shelter... with torn sails, busted rigging, etc.
