It was very interesting watching the day come on as I walked this morning. My original intent was to take photos of places that are open this time of morning but the sky, oh man, the sky.
This just in.
Special Weather Statement
REDWOOD COAST-MENDOCINO COAST- 1105 AM PST FRI DEC 8 2006
...HAZARDOUS SURF WILL IMPACT THE NORTHERN CALIFORNIA BEACHES TODAY THROUGH SUNDAY...
LONG PERIOD WESTERLY SWELL WAS PRODUCING 20 TO 25 BREAKERS THIS MORNING ALONG THE NORTHWEST CALIFORNIA COAST...WITH THE LARGEST SETS OBSERVED UP TO 30 FEET HIGH. RUN UP OF THIS WAVE ENERGY WILL MAKE BEACH GOING VERY DANGEROUS...AS THE SPEED OF THE WEST SWELL ALLOWS OCEAN WATER TO SURGE UP TO THE DUNES DURING INCOMING TIDES. ADDITIONALLY...THE POWERFUL SURF WILL PUSH LARGE LOGS AND DEBRIS ONSHORE.
WALKING ALONG JETTIES IS STRONGLY DISCOURAGED...SINCE THE WAVE ACTION CAN EASILY SWEEP AN INDIVIDUAL INTO THE COLD AND TURBULENT WATERS. BEACH WALKING DURING INCOMING TIDES IS DISCOURAGED THE NEXT FEW DAYS... ESPECIALLY FOR CHILDREN OR ELDERLY.
