10/12 forecast

Good morning!

I dropped my French Press last night, and am now suffering from a coffee-free morning. For an appliance designed to make such a strong beverage, a French Press is fragile. Do they make them in stainless steel?

If you’re looking to get on the water, you can continue your streak of east wind sessions today and tomorrow. 20-25 looks like the call today, and the early morning cams and sensors suggest that Rooster is getting the stronger wind this morning.

There’s rain headed our way tomorrow, but that might start off as a brief spurt of freezing rain or snow in the central Gorge early in the wee hours, before the sun warms us above freezing. We’re also going to get a bonus day of east wind sailing, as a powerful low pressure system off the coast keeps sucking wind through the Gorge.

Wednesday brings gusty west winds in the eastern Gorge.

In other news, there are free Crossfit workouts all week long at Children’s park. Check out crossfithoodriver.com for more information. Coming up this weekend is Harvest Fest. If you’d like to do a good deed, volunteer some time at the senior center to help make pies for sale at Harvest Fest. That’s Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday at the senior center. Contact Kyra at 386-2060 to volunteer.

Other than that… I’m looking forward to a little rain tomorrow to settle the dust on the bike trails.

I’m going to look for a new French Press now.

And some coffee.

Have a great day!
