Thank you all for your donations and kind words during last month’s pledge drive. Whew. Glad that’s over. I always feel a little weird asking for donations. That said, should you like to get on the daily email list (where you can occasionally win cool stuff), please take the time to click on the sun below and make a donation of $12 or more. That gets you a year’s subscription, and it makes me smile, because I know then that the hard work I put into this is worth a lot to you. Thank you for reading my work, and thank you for donating. Have a wonderful day!

Wind forecast guess paragraphs

In wind news today, we’re still in that offshore low weather pattern, but at least we have a solid marine push and W .08 gradient today. Of course, when I wrote the forecast, it was pitch black outside, so it was hard to tell how dense the clouds were, but I know they are there, somewhere. Anyway, that should be enough for 21-24 for much of the day near Hood River, filling in to Doug’s/Lyle/Steven’s Locks in the afternoon.

Tomorrow starts with west 17-21 near Hood River, holding all day and filling in as far east as Maryhill, maybe even Arlington, late in the day as a weather system approaches the coast. Then on Tuesday, we’ll start with light west wind and then we’ll get 21-24 in the afternoon.

Other random Gorge news

In Hood River today, it’s the last windsports swap meet of the season, happening at Luhr Jensen from 8am-noon. Once the swap meet is over, join CGWA and Northwave for an end of season BBQ, and if you’re coming to the BBQ, take the opportunity to join CGWA.

Also on the Hood River waterfront today, it’s the last race of the Gorge Cup windsurfing series, at the Event Site, starting around 8am. After the races, there’s another end of season BBQ.

Speaking of biking, today’s the Dirty Sellwood. If you’re in the Upper Valley this afternoon, keep your eye out for 40 or so riders headed for Dirty Fingers, and remember that bikes on the road have the same rights as cars on the road.

Have an awesome day today!
