Stiff north or east winds often accompany these clear and cold stretches of weather. Fortunately, for the most part, where I live in the downtown area does not get hit by these winds. Gavan Hill, the Sisters and Verstovia seem to create a nice wind break. However, these winds do funnel through some passes and valleys at either end of the road.
Today I drove out to Starrigavan and stopped to take a picture of the view from the Harbor Point turnout. There are no mountains close enough to protect this area from the cold outflow winds, which was reflected in the white caps covering the surface of the water.
