Misty drizzle after last nights heavy rainfall. Twelve degrees. Feels more like herring season than winter.

Working in my office this morning and I see a post on the Bowen Island Forum indicating that a huge pod of dolphins was heading north. I look out my window, grab the binoculars and see a wave of 100 or more dolphins swimming sometimes in a perfect curtain of spray, all rising at the same time, between Whytecliffe and Dorman Point. Amazing.
And then reading later that there were 5 orcas trailing them too, which I didn't spot.
Herring must be running already...nice to have our cetacean friends back.

Don't go anywhere if you don't have snow tires. This will all turn to rain and melt soon but it boggles my mind that folks set out on our hilly slippery island with the wrong gear. One of those who went off the road today did so to avoid hitting someone who was stuck on the road.
