My View of the World This Morning

I think I'll just stay tucked inside the boat today.  I have plenty of coffee and tea and the internet, so I will be okay.  Even if Friday Harbor loses power, which will cancel out that internet option, I have a shelf full of books, and we can be self-reliant for heat and lighting.  Plus there is a big pot of fresh chili Al made yesterday, simmering away on the Diesel Stove.

bliz·zard  (blzrd)
a. A violent snowstorm with winds blowing at a minimum speed of 35 miles (56 kilometers) per hour and visibility of less than one-quarter mile (400 meters) for three hours.
b. A very heavy snowstorm with high winds.

So far, we have not reached the requirements for the first definition of a blizzard, as the wind speed has not yet kicked up to forecast speeds, though it is getting closer at 30 at the moment.

To the port, into the harbor.  See how the snow is drifting around the barrier?

Looking forward

To the starboard, towards the Port office.

To the aft.
