We have four 10 footers, which we stacked in the corner one winter until the lightbulb (thanks to YouTube) finally went off. We’re lucky to have a deep third bay so we had lots of room to ratchet them up into the cold season oblivion.

I'm going to make a storage box and set it along the side of my house, put a little shingled roof on it and have doors on either end so I can slide the kayaks in/out.  I would love to continue kayaking in the winter but unfortunately, my dry suit has shrunk (that's my story and I'm sticking to it!) but I am working to remedy that.  They kayak group up here does a nice float down the Skagit in January to check out the Eagles, plus I wouldn't mind doing some winter camping out there on the islands.

I am off today, sounds like a good idea. 

Got it done!!! 💪😀☀️
perfect weather for the job. Glad I did it now as it was pretty easy using the blower.   A couple areas I got down on my knees and did the downspout  filters clinging to the roof like a scared cat! 
 

71*

It was fine with my 14' but I added a 17' a few years ago and that one is a giant PITA.  Between shelves along the wall, upright freezer and a big rolling tool chest, plus the fact that my garage is only about 6" wider than my kayak it long, it sucks putting it away and taking it down.  I actually want to build an outbuilding to house them.  I have a plan in mind, but lumber has been too expensive (I think it is finally coming down).

I’ve got mine upright but their the recreational so not as long.  Luckily I have a lot of clarance in my garage hight wise

Quiet in here tonight!

Was a spectacular early fall day. In the upper 50s right now with the moon shining through a few clouds where I am in Bothell.

The 00z GFS is a bit of a downer for PDX. Rainfall cut in half in one run. Much drier for Oregon than the 12z or 18z. The ICON is backing off too.

Just the OP I assume. The ensembles have trended wetter and wetter, at least 12z, 18z.

00z ECMWF in 1 hour 5 minutes

Had to go to the state fair this evening... my daughter had an event there.    I really like Puyallup.   Very nice downtown area and very well maintained.   Have not been there in a long time.    Its nickname the "swamp" does not fit.

In marginal snow events it’s quite fitting. Remember my dad used to live in south auburn that whole low lying area is terrible for snow.

Flight Sim Shack!!! 

LOL!  It's a bit drafty out there. That said, it is turning into a remote HAM Shack.  I have a Raspberry Pi ADSB receiver set up out there, and will get an RPi SDR going out there in the next few weeks.  Once I invest in bigger radios (just have a HT now) my antennas will run off the shed. 

As for simming,  I gotta tell you my new job is seriously cutting into my flight sim time, and I am not happy about it! 😆 I finally got my Honeycomb Bravo Throttle quadrant a few weeks ago (backordered for 6-ish months) and have barely had time to try it out!

I use to work for the City of Puyallup. The town is kept kept update and clean. The swamp is very fitting in snow events😂😂

Thanks bud! I tend to stay away in the summer as the weather and models are pretty boring to me. Unless there's a chance of thunder. It's just will it rain or how hot will it get.

Love seeing this in September

Nicholas is officially a hurricane and I wouldn’t be surprised to see a really bad rainfall situation in Texas.

The 00Z ECMWF is insane for Friday... WA is inundated.     Seems like some daily rainfall records will fall.    3 to 4 inches in one day here will have the rivers and creeks absolutely roaring.

Not trolling... that is some serious rain.  Shades of October 2003.   I am guessing there is typhoon remnants entrained.    I like getting lots of rain quickly... but that might be a tad too much.   Wish it could be spread out more to the south.

Wtf did Oregon do to spite the gods…seems like too much. Although I’m gonna play bright side and say I’m glad everyone is getting atleast some rain instead of East wind torch fest. Hope Oregon gets the soaker soon

Wasn't that the Monday that got like 5 inches? The December/Early January that followed was pretty epic
