The wind picked up to around 50 knots W after midnight last night and has been blowing 30 to 40 knots all day.
On Thursday I got a break in the weather and went off island to get supplies for repairing the siding on the South wall of the Tank Room and for making a compost container. Students are coming for project week tomorrow and will be doing some service projects during their stay.
Over the past week Squall has made her way around the S side of the light tower and back to the W side of the main house. Yesterday, while crossing over the cistern, she came across a puddle and had, what I believe was, her first experience with standing water. She was quite interested in the water and spent a while probing it with her flippers and snout, inhaling it a few time in the process.
