    We live in Ballard, and we often have high winds coming off the water, but tonight it's nuts. Even over our traditional Christmas-time Lord of the Rings movie watching, we could hear it screeching...

    Wow! That's amazing! I loved the part about how carefully you cleaned it off, later. Dyneema is amazing, I love the stuff. I just can't seem to wear mine out, although I haven't tried this! (And...

    Sure! You don't have to twist my arm to take pictures, if you'd like some of those, too. I have a nice camera and I like using it.
