The harbor - Capital Adventures — LiveJournal
You do get some interesting weather there... wouldn't phase me though, I grew up in Hartlepool, which is this little jut of land sticking out into the north sea, right on the point where England bends just bit... so basically, damn all between us and the north pole except for a few oil rigs.
We got huge rip-snorting gales roar though on a regular basis.
The weather here is what you get when you erect a wall of rock across Lat 40S, and then cut a gap in it. Fun with fluid dynamics!
