That's the sound of a weather window closing in your face.

A front is moving in today.  While it dissipates mid week, it's allowing a region of high pressure to build north of here.  This is going to cause strong winds from the north for the rest of the week and over the weekend.  Really, really bad news.  By Friday NOAA is forecasting rough seas in the gulf stream and a brutal day on Saturday.  9 - 11 feet waves.  According to NOAA "waves are expressed in the terms of the significant wave height, the mean or average height of the highest one third of all waves", which means there will be even bigger waves out there.  In fact they estimate 1 in 100 waves will be 50% bigger than this estimate.  So we're talking big waves out there this weekend.

I'm not sure what we'll be doing yet.  Steph and I will talk it over when she gets back tomorrow.
