Storm Watch 2014
We are expecting a real humdinger of a storm today and already there is no view of the bay through the rainy window pane.
The National Weather Service has issued a Hurricane Force Wind Advisory and we are expecting winds of over 70 knots to come ashore here in Netarts. They have included the following bit of information along with the warning...
"A HURRICANE FORCE WIND WARNING MEANS WINDS OF 64 KNOTS OR GREATER ARE IMMINENT OR OCCURRING. ALL VESSELS SHOULD REMAIN IN PORT...OR TAKE SHELTER AS SOON AS POSSIBLE...UNTIL WINDS AND WAVES SUBSIDE."
As advised, my vessel will remain in port until further notice. Preferably with a warm fire and toasty adult beverage.
