Shopping List for Friday

Friday, February 03, 2006

Today's shopping: bread, pre-roasted chicken, tuna, baby shrimp, crackers, peanut butter, Starbucks Double Shot coffees (sorry, Sam), candles, battery-operated Coleman lamp, battery-operated TV. Get the picture?
A rapidly developing storm well offshore will race to Vancouver
Island tonight and early Saturday. A very strong cold front will
move to the coast line by 11 PM tonight... with strong damaging
winds arriving.

Strong south winds are expect to develop along the coast late this
afternoon... and strengthen this evening. South winds are forecast
to become 30 to 45 mph this evening... with frequent gusts over 60
mph. Expect strongest winds on the open beaches and headlands...
with steady winds of 45 to 55 mph and gusts of 80 to 90 mph.
Nobody said a word about the same sort of storm that hit Tuesday, so I'm guessing this one won't arrive at all. But I'm ready!
