17 January 2019 - So...fea DECK LOG - Sea Temperature
The journal Science has concluded that the oceans are warming four times faster than had been previously predicted by a United Nations panel five years ago.
The rain came back . . . our four days of sun, blue skies and 55 degrees has left ! we are back to overcast Oregon coast drizzle and 45 degree days and 45 degree nights with 5 MPH winds (constant).
We have been in a week-long tidal action mode of yaw, just enough to squeek lines, it has been 24 hours a day in a 3-4 second cyclic... never being much on hydrology, I see the "results" without knowing the scientific "cause", the wind here is never ending and constant, when the easterly wind at 5-8 MPH is on us we get into this yaw-effect.
Last year, we had southerly winds all winter, with North winds all summer, this is a change.
They tightened up the harbor boom, and we since have witnessed these pesky small diameter logs now being deflected, rather than entering, a big help ! one big item herein this location is the "constant" wind effect . . . always at 5-8 mph.... always... anything like a gust is in addition to that 5 MPH base wind, this is very similar to being in the Caribbean somewhere ! I had to move our dolly to the opposite side of the dock box, it would travel on its own down the dock !
