This has been a crazy 12 hours here in Gig Harbor. We have seen rain, wind, floods, and we have possible snow in the forecast for this evening. I’m not sure Gig Harbor can take anymore abuse today. It all started last night around 10:00pm when the wind started to pick up with a cold front that was moving through. As usual with great consistency the temperature soared significantly while the wind howled most of the night. I woke up around 3:30am to my power out, but thank goodness it was only for a short period of time. The Gig Harbor winds were still a blowing when I woke up this morning at 6:00am.
I had to leave to go to the gym and on my way there were several limbs and small trees down all over Gig Harbor. Our area is full of large trees and it is always scary to know that we have a wind storm approaching here in Gig Harbor. As I drove on there were several stop lights out as well and I’m glad to know that everyone obeyed the four stop rule when that happens here in Gig Harbor.
I ended my workout and when I came home checked out what was going on around the rest of Gig Harbor and I couldn’t believe to hear that downtown was flooding! Due to the high tide in Downtown Gig Harbor and the amount of rain we have had the harbor was actually rising above its banks. I am so sad for some local businesses and homes that suffered damage from this strange phenomenon. Meanwhile in Gig Harbor the wind continued to blow.
At last as the sun is shining outside right now, I see that the extended forecast calls for cold and possible snow for tonight into early tomorrow morning. Hold on to your britches Gig Harbor it’s about to get crazy out there for the next couple. But the good news is if you want warmth and comfort that might come to you on Friday! December 21, 2012! Just kidding… Couldn’t resist throwing that in there!
So if Gig Harbor wind, water, and snow are your cup of tea you’ll be just fine.
