~ Report from the Edge of a Continent ~ Storm Surge ~

Friday morning, November 13: Evidence of a storm brewing. Big clouds stream from the south along our western horizon. Deposits of wave generated sea foam extend along the shoreline at ebb tide.

Sunday, November 15. Yesterday and today, gale force winds averaging 25 mph with gusts as high as 50, accompanied by frequent squalls and downpours, have pummeled the Long Beach Peninsula.

A New Moon King Tide adds to the drama!

November 16 – 17, 2020: Monday night the wind and rain were nonstop. Windows were tested, the fireplace moaned, and the barometer dropped to the bottom of its scale. Tuesday morning at low tide, Jello and I ventured out into the rain and wind. Our dunes, beach and Pacific Ocean were still here.

There was a bit of a break in our Tuesday afternoon walk.

Wishing everyone safe harbor, as we navigate uncharted waters.🐾
