Normally, Lake Union is quite placid. It’s reasonably protected and rarely sees much wave action. Normally, KJ doesn’t move in the wind. That 66 tons holds her nice and steady.
Not today. She was rockin’ and pulling at her lines when I woke up.
We’ve had strong winds with gusts above 50 today.
This is just round one with a three-round fight with gusty winds. Another storm promises wind gusts of around 40-50 mph on Tuesday night, and then a potentially very strong wind storm looms for Thursday night and Friday morning.

Let’s just say we were not impressed. Leans toward the “modern” side of architecture, meaning sharp, angular, hard, and uncomfortable. And yes, I mean the chairs.

While the escalators were cool, they failed to make up for the overall feel of the building.
