    Wind. Terrible wind and 56°. Tried to go out in the wheatfields to sight infinity on the old farmhouse up the road, on the Hasselblad I had been working on. Had fashioned a GG back to see how well it jives with the screen. Couldn't even get the black cloth over my head. The wind kept blowing me backwards and the tripod and camera kept wanting to blow over. Totally impossible, so I had to come home and watch movies on youtube.

    It's finally warm here (76 F right now), though I doubt it's going to last. But it's windy as all heck. It always seems to be windy here. Is that a midwest thing no one here notices and therefore no one warned us about? I've been doing an instant shot per week project and wanted to do this weekend's outside. But I'm sure I'll have the same problem as Tom ^ with the darkcloth (never mind keeping the 4x5 from blowing over).

    With regards to bad weather, I often think of this wonderful shot by Robert Doisneau.

    Pretty much the same conditions here. 75 with 30 MPH constant winds. It's been VERY dry, too. Pretty much no humidity for weeks.

    No matter what I do, there seems to be static everywhere. Just had to wipe down my changing bag/tent and all my 4x5 holders and film boxes with dryer sheets to cut down on static.

    Even with humidifying my darkroom, just walking around the house generates enough static for some big shocks... Thankfully I've only fogged some test strips with the static so far!

    Denmark is getting warmer and the sun has a lot of power at the moment. The better days are 15 degrees C but there's still sub-zero temperatures some nights

    That's one of my favorites. I had a calendar of pictorialist images last year and that was in it.

    Also dry here, too. We didn't get much snow either, so the drought continues. We're about to head into storm season, though. I'm not looking forward to big storms and tornado warnings.

    No strong wind, no storm but a mild weather here. Sun is shining , 14 celcius degrees and Istanbul is so beatiful as usual.

    Some rain fell at SeaTac (the regional airport that collects the official statistics for Seattle) this morning.

    That officially puts us over the top as the single wettest March on record ever. We've had something like three times the normal rainfall. It has rained just about every day this month. One thing I don't worry much about is using water to wash film and prints.

    All of those global warming heads-in-the-sand deniers? Better pull your heads out so you don't drown. The water table here is rising. Warmer air holds more water, and on average rainfall increases. Along with storm frequency and severity.

    Although previous logging appears to be an aggravating factor, this month's non-stop rainfall was the triggering factor for this tragic event about 30 miles (48 km) north of me.

    I've driven on Highway 530 around that very bend in the North Stillaguamish River many times. A family friend was born and raised in Oso, and still has relatives there. (I hope...)
