We have been having a series of storms this fall. A couple of them have reached wind speeds between 120 and 124km/hr (74-77mph) at Trial Island (in the distance in photo above).
I don’t have any pictures from the height of the storms – it was just too wild and too much spray to be taking cameras into. I did try to get some on film in slightly less wild conditions and the above phone shot was secondary to that effort.
I could not tell if my camera was even taking pictures as I could not hear the film advance over the wind. That film will be processed today.
In the meantime, above is a picture from about a week ago of the waves breaking over the storm drain. Below are shots from yesterday of all the wood that ended up on the walkways that ring Ross Bay. In the panorama below the storm drain is near the upper left corner, but mostly underwater so not very visible and on the right is Clover Point. The bottom picture is of the storm drain, after the storm but while driftwood was still floating around.
