Storm 08

Since the big rain Wednesday, the storm has abated considerably not quite living up to the projections for rain and high wind.  Nonetheless the wind has been strong; palm frawns litter the streets where non-indigeneous palm weeds are located.  And we have received about 1.5 more inches since Wednesday, putting us in the 5.5 to 6 inch range, well above the average for the whole month of January.

I went out looking around yesterday over by the campus and saw a boat that had slipped its moorings and run ashoal:

Yesterday I got a closer view:

A bit further out beyond the boat, the seas were high at Campus Point:

 Gulls were riding the updraft from the bluff.

 And dotting the sky:
