The winds tore through the area so fiercely last night that at one point, I could feel our townhouse in Ballard shudder slightly.
It made me wonder how liveaboards were doing. Did the gusts rock your boat last night? Did your power go out? (According to the Seattle Times, the wind caused another 38,000 power outages around Puget Sound, where some people have remained without power since last week’s snow and ice storms.)
And how did you handle it? Did the wind lull you to sleep or cause you to toss and turn, worrying about your boat? Do you have any strategies (i.e. wearing earplugs, going outside to check your lines) to help get you through powerful windstorms?
We’d like to hear about how you (and your boats) coped through last night’s gusty winds.
