    Evan,
    Thanks for the link.
    Looks like a good resource, but wish the map showed up using IE. I'll have to find a computer running Chrome to check it out.
    Here is another source for wind info that I find very helpful when fishing the sound.

    Evan, cool map! For those of us living in E Wa, wind is very fishing related. When I check a forecast, I am not usually looking to see if it will rain or snow or how hot or cold it will be, but what the wind will be doing.

    Can you load plug-ins on your system?
    Ok, I know, if someone's making you use IE they probably say "no plug-ins", but if you can:
    http://www.google.com/chromeframe

    Although I think it would only work if the site has a meta tag instructing IE to use the chrome plug-in as the rendering engine, so it may not help.

    What is your point...poking fun at Old Man and Mumbles is certainly not sporting for a man of your talents Flybill, you should have much sharper tounged opponents.

    Oh, and BITE ME!

    I notice the wind tunnel around Oly, is it near the KP? Is that a vortex effect of some sort, I wonder?:D

    I really don't need a wind map. I just look outside to see if it's blowing and from which direction. It blows here every day.

    The weather would be really nice if the damn wind would just stop blowing every once in a while. While I like the wind in the summer time, I hate it in the winter.

    Are you a little hostile this morning?????

    I just looked at the map. And the wind is blowing out of the south as it always does in the spring and summer time.

    Are you happy now.:)
