And the winds came

The problem with weather forecasts is that they can be right.  Last night I was sitting on the dock in dead calm with gale warnings forecast.  Today the winds hit.  Unlike Earl when I was on the lee of the dock I am now on the windward side.  It is also a spring tide so the water level is almost at the top of the dock.  Reboot is being pushed hard against the fenders.  One of the now lee side cruisers lent me two big ball fenders and that is helping a lot.  A wind shift is predicted that will put the wind more on the bow but it is still several hours away.
In the meantime I am just sitting out the discomfort.
