Windblown.......

 8:08 am - Sunday - November 8th - Seal Rock, OR - 36° F, 93% humidity, wind - CALM......mostly sunny today with a forecast high of 48° F.  On this date in 2015 we were having breakfast at Schat's Bakery in Bishop, CA......↴


The rain continued through Friday night into Saturday morning, but by lunch time we had sunlight streaming in through the windows.....quite a change from the last 4 days.  

We lazed around Sunday morning first watching an English Premier soccer match, and then the USC vs. Arizona State NCAA football game....and what a game it was!  USC played horribly for the first 58 minutes, but scored two touchdowns in the last 90 seconds to go up by one point, 28-27, and then held on to win the game.  What an opening day game for the PAC-12!  The night cap featured #1 Clemson vs. #4 Notre Dame....the marquee game of the day......the game seesawed back and forth, and was tied at the end of regulation.....33-33.  It then went to double overtime with Notre Dame prevailing 47-40.....another great NCAA football game with no protests, no message about BLM, or any other political messages......just plain, old football.

The wind came up about 1 pm, so we had to stow the patio awning for the first time in weeks.  After accomplishing that task we headed into Waldport to do a small grocery shopping, and were back home a little after 2 pm.  The temps were extremely chilly, especially with the wind chill factor.  For the first time in a couple of years I pulled out my peacoat to wear into town.

We spent the afternoon watching more NCAA football games, which were all basically blowouts, and finished out the day/evening reading with the wind howling in the background.  It appears I will be able to work Sunday, and Monday for sure this week, but the forecast for Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday looks ominous....almost like a repeat of last week.....we'll see.
