    Looking nasty out of Whittier this weekend, havenít been out for two weeks and really need a boat fix. Wife keeps the NOAA Weather link on her desktop so canít weasel around this one. Anyone else going to venture out and test the waters this weekend? Never really know what its going do tell yea get out there, perhaps Iíll be able to formulate a game plan the family will go with, but looks like a no-go this weekend unless thing improve dramatically in the next 24 to 36 hours.

    I was hoping to get out this weekend also, but the weather doesn't look like much fun. I think i'll just hang out and work around the house.

    I was wanting to go out for a day or two, but figure I'm better off catching up on some honey dos, and some boat maintenance.

    I'll be out there Tuesday thru Friday with family from out of town. We are going to be out about 40-50 miles, and plan to stay out there the whole time. Hopefully the weather cooperates...

    Here's a good link to a webcam with real-time images from Whittier. The time on the camera screen is UTC, not local time. I usually check NOAA and this site to see what it looks like out there before heading down. You can find many other sites on the list as well. I figured I'd share this with anyone who needs it.
