Talking about waves, not ale. (That comes later.) Swells in the 3’ plus are still rolling in from the nor’easter from this past weekend. With intervals of 10-11 seconds, should have been better. But the winds were not cooperating, coming onshore diagonal at 15-20 knots. Still something is better than nothing.
We are getting pummeled by rain here several times a week, which makes the run-off and water quality very bad when it’s not blowing. A few days ago we had one storm where we got 6 inches in 36 hours. A few days before it had been 3 inches with 40 mph winds. All that water and wind finally found a weak spot in my roof. Lately San Diego area often does not get 10 inches of rain in a year and we are getting that much almost every week where we live on a ridge. I’ve only made it out a few times in the past several weeks. Hoping to catch some waves Sunday before the next atmospheric river storm.
You are the “forerunner.” What you get, we get 3-5 days later!
Ooh… sorry about roof tho! Reminds me of “Snowmegadom” of 2015. We had over 3’ of snow in little over 24 hours. My shed roof collapsed. I had ice dams on roof, where water from melted snow backed into the roof eaves and then onto our ceilings. PITA to repair the damage. But had several great surf sessions from that storm. Lemonade from a BIG lemon.
As my former colleague from South Boston Irish would say, add a six pack to those spuds and you have a perfect Irish meal. (I admit that we did a bit of drinking after work hours in my younger days in good Irish bar/restaurants … Doyles, Gallaghers, Costello’s…)
I wouldn’t be suprised but we are well upstream of Mio Pond. Paddling Grayling to Parmalee. That rarely ices over & a group from our club did the same trip three weeks ago. The last weekend of February is our usual time for this paddle but I had a family obligation & couldn’t make that trip.
