Pummeling


W WIND 30 TO 35 KT WITH GUSTS TO 40 KT.
EASING TO 20 TO 25 KT WITH GUSTS TO 30 KT IN THE AFTERNOON.
COMBINED SEAS 28 FT DOMINANT PERIOD 14 SECONDS.
SUBSIDING TO 24 FT IN THE AFTERNOON.

Lincoln City lost all power...blown substation.
Highways to the coast closed...downed trees.
Roofs leaving buildings...100 mph winds.
Power lines snapping and arcing...dancing on the streets.
The music of chainsaws and generators...playing loud.
Huge 40 foot storm surf gives way...to clean uncrowded tubes.
You can hope...can't you?

Some might say I am irresponsible...but, yes.
