Spray Above The Spit
That is not a white cloud above the spit -- tis spray from the high surf action going on on the other (Pacific) side. Waves are crashing against the spit and the spray was visible above it today. Haven't seen it before but then again, I wasn't looking for it during prior High Surf Advisories. Sure will be looking for it in the future. Was way cool to watch the spray rise up and then dissipate. Sorry it is not as clear as it should be -- was pretty close to max'd out on the zoom.
Got windy last night. Highest gusts recorded around me was gusts of 83 mph at both Garibaldi (at the mouth of Tillamook Bay) and Cape Meares. Picked up a total of .40 inches of rain last night. Not a big rainy storm -- twas a windstorm with some rain.
Starting to rain sideways. Guess round two is arriving.
