Today's storm

We went out to storm watch for a bit.    Max was excited at first to be going to the "beach" but when we got there, that was the end of his interest.

The winds were gusting to over 100 kilometers per hour.

Sheila got out to look at the parking lot at the Oak Bay Marina and was utterly soaked by a huge wave.   The water in the parking lot was about 20 cm deep

I would have more pictures, but the spray kept fouling my lens.

The water was washing over onto Dallas Road.  

In McNeil Bay the waves did not look as big, but the road was getting covered in more water and debris.   Sheila was not willing to stop to let me take any pictures.
