It will be hard to ignore the weather here for the next few days at least… the weather service is tossing around terms like “gale force” winds and “atmospheric river.” We’ll take a look at those terms, and at the forecast, which includes the potential for inches of rain.

For folks on land, our weather will be worthy of a hot cup of tea, a good book, and a warm pet nearby if you have one (or two). For mariners at sea, it means a lot more work to get things done, and to get from one place to another safely.

In short, it’s autumn on the coast – so snuggle in if you can.
