    Default First Run of the year out of Whittier

    Perfect day for the first run of the year. Slight chop, little wind , blue sky and about 40deg. And best of all diesel was $3.55/gallon at Shoreside today. Glad I filled the tanks before the Whittier seasonal gouge'em tax starts. Just an awesome day in the sound and only three more weeks till shrimp season opens.

    When does that gas tax start up? $3.55/gallon sounds too good to be true!

    How about the ramps and parking?

    Not sure about the gas prices. The contractors are working 7 days a week and I think double shifting trying to get everything done ( good luck). With all the construction stuff staged in the parking area its going to be fun getting in and out. Luckily I have a slip in Cliffside so now avoid the circus at the ramp.
    Whittier got about 8" of snow Friday but its almost all melted. Lowest snowpack I have ever seen down there.
    I heard the seasonal tax starts May 1.

    What is the parking costing these days? Is it still 10 bucks a day? Do they have monthly?

    They do monthly as well as seasonally. I am not sure what the monthly rate is but it is about $500 for the season.

    I think it was 150 a month last year, no charge for all the potholes in the lot.
