Another big blow on Sunday – more powerful than Saturday? We’ll see…

Surf along the beaches of North Lincoln County.  Wave heads blown sideways by the southerly blow.  Sands blowing south to north at 40mph.

A News Lincoln County reader observed that despite the high winds and the blowing sand, there were actually a few swimmers in the surf on Saturday. She marveled that none of them got into trouble, at least on this north county beach.

A little farther south near Depoe Bay, the surf was surging and spraying huge fountain heads of rooster tails skyward – as most surf does around this part of the coast. Photographer Steve Power, like the rest of us shooting on Saturday, had to aim our cameras north to prevent our lenses from getting soaked. As usual, Steve perfectly captured the sea’s mood, if not state of mind, in this poignant shot at Boiler Bay.

As for Sunday, we’re expecting heavy rain mainly in the morning, then after lunch the winds will re-build into another big blow – mostly between 2pm and 5pm. After five, the winds are expected to taper a bit and by Sunday evening take us back into something more predictably autumnal. Not exactly, but closer to it.

And of course, if you’re out and around and would like to share what you’re seeing with the rest of our viewers, snap them and email them to: Dave@NewsLincolnCounty.com

We’re happy to give photo credits so you get your due. But if you want to remain anonymous that’s fine as well.

Be careful out there. We live in some pretty unforgiving landscapes.
