I got a phone call today from a supplier telling me he couldn't fax a quote because the power was out. He was calling on his cell phone to let me know. He said the winds were in the neighborhood of 70 kts.

Batten down the hatches!

Batten down the hatches!Not yet -- it's not that breezy today, just 5kts as I write this. The local weather is only predicting 15kts and the marine forecast not much more.

I imagine your supplier was in the East King county region at the Cascades foothills. I happened to catch an emergency bulletin broadcast on KSER (community radio) that there were high winds in the Enumclaw area with trees going down. I haven't heard a peep aboput it on NPR or other mainstream radio. There's barely any wind here at my shop near Fishermans Terminal.

The good news with floods and natural disasters is that rodents and vermin are found drowned. Let me know if and when a kat like rat is found belly up in the Seattle area. I await the good news.

Yeah, it blew pretty hard out here in the foothills, lots of leaves and branches down- don't know why it would be so localized.

I don't know, Meerkat, it didn't work for Monica! :eek:
Thanks for the weather report, guys, I'll have to check in with my daughter in Portland and see how things are holding up there.
Here, we've just had lovely winter weather: rain and tornadoes! :confused: Still hoping for some snow.....

Thanks, I was thinking of people like Jamie and Meerkat as well as all those boats. Glad you didn't have any trouble.
