Random Morning Thoughts

This morning I found myself talking to my happy light. Must be getting close to winter.

Wind guessings, prognosticatings and musings

Easterly gradients chowed down some spinach overnight, and they’re big and strong this morning: .13 from Portland to The Dalles. That’s going to be enough for 26-30 at Steven’s Locks today with 30-35 at Rooster Rock. The wind will start fading early afternoon as the thermal low pressure trough moves further onshore.

As that trough moves further inland tomorrow, we’ll see the east wind turn to west. Expect light wind in the morning, perfect for a SUP or road bike ride or fishing. By late afternoon, the wind will build to 15-18 from Steven’s Locks to Mosier.

Sunday brings light wind here, but it looks like the central coast will see 15-18 out of the north. The coast does not look windy for the rest of the three-day period. However, there is a long-period swell starting to hit: 2@12 tonight, 3@13 tomorrow, 4@14 Sunday, and 8@(not sure yet) on Monday.

Plain old weather

Lovely, lovely, sunny and dry. So damn pretty, brings a tear to my eye. All the leaves are turning. Go out in the woods and take a look.

Mountain biking

I’m not much of a shuttle advocate, but it’s really worth shuttling Post Canyon right now. The dirt is truly lovely.

Events n’ stuff – Please email with upcoming events related to the outdoors

The Seahawks won, yet again, yesterday. This is getting boring. Maybe I’ll have to quit watching until they get worse.

Harvest Fest gets going today at the Event Site in Hood River. It continues through Sunday. In Odell, tomorrow and Sunday, it’s the Gorge Fruit and Craft Fair at the fairgrounds.

Tomorrow, Saturday, at 2pm, the 509ers have a work party on the White Salmon Bike Park. Get your hands dirty between 2pm and 5pm, and earn the everlasting love of the folks of the great town of White Salmon.

Have an awesome day today!
