High wind and rain

Published December 20, 2018 / by Steve Berentson

I didn’t hear about any major power outages in Anacortes this afternoon, but crews including this one near Cortland Rope stood as evidence of emergency calls due to high winds. State and county ferries were still running in early afternoon and Commercial Avenue activity was brisk, likely including shoppers who were stocking up for possible power outages in coming days. In other parts of the county, trees blocked SR20 north of Deception Pass and I-5 in both directions near Bow Hill.

About Steve Berentson
A fourth generation Skagit County native who was moved kicking and screaming from this island community in 1960. I finally reclaimed an Anacortes address in 1980, and I have been in constant celebration of my return since that time. Many of us who call Anacortes home love Fidalgo Island for its natural assets: among them are rugged beaches, pristine lakes, thousands of acres of forestland and some awesome views of the Skagit Valley and surrounding islands. Another element of my love affair with this community is its people, both natives and immigrants. They will “star” in many of my journal entries.
