Morning clouds over the Pacific Ocean

The sunrise is reflected on the clouds out on the Pacific Ocean. The Mendocino Coast, in particular Gualala, has been hit with numerous power outages from the last storm and four more storms are lined up before we get a chance to dry out a bit. In this picture you can see the big swells coming straight in. A few hours later the winds shifted in the storm direction and the surface water ran south to north. The ocean was telling all who were paying attention that another storm was on the way. Still, on this morning's walk with Huckleberry, our golden retriever, we found signs that spring really is here.

Red sky in morning, sailor's warning!

And you were right, Frank! Another blast of winter weather last night. Nearly two inches of the wet stuff and some gusty winds. Highway One was closed at several places this morning due to downed trees. It's always exciting on the Mendonoma Coast!
