When we tied up in Astoria two hours later, day was breaking and both rain and the barometric pressure were falling. By the afternoon, the wind was blowing 20 knots at our dock. It built steadily overnight until we first saw 53 knots on our anemometer the next morning. We double-secured our solar panels, unplugged the dinghy, put on our mainsail cover, deployed all our fenders, and doubled down on the dock lines. Pieces blew off surrounding, untended boats. Tarps whipped themselves to shreds.
