Looks like you guys may have beat the odds for some nice weather and wind today?

How was the wind?

I see tomorrow looks rainy and 20 mph, but let's hope that they are wrong once again.

Nice day in Seattle, but no reasonable winds.

The wind was typical Whidbey Island for this time of year: somewhat variable and light, dwindling to virtually nothing for an hour or so and then a wind direction change and a nice, light steady breeze. The main thing is, the rain gear stayed in the bag.

Thanks for the details, Steve. 

Always a fun festival!  Good luck in the raffle,

Whidbey Island is one of my favourite festivals, it's so scenic and the raffle & Swap tents are always fun.
A few pics from yesterday:

We pulled out today @12:30................in fact, we never got out of the car.....just sat inside and observed.  At the moment of our departure the rain had just begun with sustained winds 18-20 and gusts measured at 36 mph.  I believe fall has arrived here in the PNW  :'(  Time to watch football.....GO HAWKS!!!
