Very strong winds on Anstruther tonight. Rain fell throughout the day, often heavy, providing our dry ground with much needed water. Yes - that's the upside of the rain. The downside is the problems caused by rain and wind. We checked on boats through the day and several were in trouble.
If you do not have a bilge, please consider getting one, if you do have a bilge but it isn't working, please talk to us about replacing it. If you don't have a boat cover, please consider getting one. If you have a cover, please remember to use it. These are some reasons that some of the troubled boats were troubled.
The wind is blowing toward us, not the typical direction and often a sign of problems for our docks. We heard a boat on the water a short while ago, though it's almost a full moon it was covered by cloud leaving the lake very very dark. Not sure if the boat had a light or if it was just far away, this is a rough night to be crossing, we had whitecaps at the shore whipping up a foam at the shore's edge.
We are grateful that we still have power - typically we lose hydro through heavy winds.
