Storm waves!!

Well the first storm of the season is coming in and everyone has been getting ready for it, I myself have been making sure I have plenty of candles ready just in case the power goes out tonight.I managed to make my way down to the beach to get a look at the storm waves coming in and they are getting bigger as it moves closer inland, the weatherman said the winds may get up to as high as 60mph and lots of rain, right now the wind has been gusting anywhere from 20-40 mph. My neighbor was watching me get pictures of the waves and yelling run run as he laughed at me running from the incoming wave then chasing it back out.The storm is still 100 miles offshore but it looks like it's getting closer from the size of the waves I'm seeing.

I'm sure I looked awfully funny chasing waves....the people watching from their hotel windows must think I'm nuts!!! I'm running down after the wave and trying not to get caught by one and washed out to sea by one...so I like living on the edge sometimes,according to my neighbor these storms will get worse as the storm season hits more, so I'm looking forward to getting some real cool pictures of that when it happens.It seems ot be getting worse out as the day wears on so maybe I'll get even better pictures later on, hope you enjoy the ones i've managed to get so far!!!

Eureka is a coastal city too..... we have a saying that every seventh wave is a rogue wave so you have to watch out for that one to sneak up on you... Be careful for goodness sakes... you could drown and ruin your camera.... .... sylvia
