    Went out into the wet wild woods today. Between squalls. Took a few piccys with the Crown Graphic. Middle of the day and the shadow areas didn't register on my spot meter, the bright spots were 3. Looooong exposures on HP5.

    My usual November consolation - picking edible mushrooms in those wet wild woods - is a bust this year. September and October were too hot and dry. The chanterelles are all hiding.

    Yep, the weather turned ***********, put your own word in here, if it's not rain it wind, if it's not one of these it's both. Oh joy. Remember those comments not long ago about how long will the hot spell last? Until November.

    It was mixed sun and cloud and light rain in Point Roberts Washington this afternoon. Back in BC, there was a beautiful rainbow to the east (at about 3:00 p.m.)

    Bright, sunny, and very very windy this afternoon. I think I'll skip raking until April.

    I am beginning to resent being referred to as 'half-fast'.
    Whatever that's supposed to mean.

    Could be worse. Out on the Olympic Peninsula the rain gauges are calibrated not in inches, but in feet. The massive Lake Quinault Lodge rain gauge located in the Quinault Rainforest averages 15-feet (4.6-meters) each year.

    As a side note, a biologist I knew once told me that because of our never-ending rain a temperate rainforest, like the western edges of the US Pacific Northwest and British Columbia further to the north, has a higher aggregate total biomass per cubic meter than even a tropical rainforest like that in the Amazon Basin.

    Because of this if you've ever done any true wilderness backpacking here you learn real quick that it's almost impossible to wander off-trail very far. Often even for only a few feet. We never had to worry too much about the Boy Scout kids getting lost on overnight hikes. Just too impenetrable. Only one way in and one way back out.

    Having once worked as a field geologist, it fell to me to teach the boys some rudimentary land navigation skills using a magnetic compass. Pretty useless skill set, though, when all one can do is follow the trail forward and backward...
