When we wake up tomorrow, Storm Barra will be here, pounding us with high winds. Forecasts of 100+mph gusts on the coast, but hopefully less here inland, but saying that, we’re in the area with highest winds in the below forecast. It will last right through the day until the following morning. For everyone’s sake, try to lock everything down today, and stay safe tomorrow.
