This is Bandon, 23 miles north of Port Orford, on the Pacific Coast, in Oregon, USA.
The temperatures are in the mid-50's. The wind is mild. The sun is shining.
It's Tuesday, February 9th, 2010.
In a few hours, wind and rain pushed everyone indoor.Off Cape Blanco winds clocked at 70 miles an hour through the night, and trees and debris scattered everywhere.
It is Friday as I write this. It has been windy and rainy and grey for three days now.
The storm will gather forces over the prairies, receive strength from the Canadian winds and connect with the Gulf Stream to create havoc on the East Coast.
This is typical weather for us.
What's not typical are the number of days with great weather that follow each storm.
