Just got an alert from my father about a storm rolling in tomorrow and checked out the weather reports and it looks like 30-40mph winds, low 30s for the mountain lower elevations <4k, and snow and higher winds in upper elevations.

So if you plan to travel in the mountains be prepared!

Lower elevations are expected to get high winds too!

With our recent rain storm this could lead to more power outages... our ground is still sopping wet, and we've had humidity above 50% too so everything is staying wet.

Wind up approaching 30 mph in gusts. No rain forecast. Even under bare poles the boat is trying to sail away and take the dock with it. Going to be a noisy and bumpy night here in Central California.
