Fall is here.

There is a deep low hanging just southwest of the Kenai Penisula in Alaska and it is creeping down the coast towards us. Tonight Haida Gwaii is expecting winds in excess of 90 km/h and the rain will be with us tomorrow. Follow it here.

I finally secured my firewood yesterday - two honest cords of fir with a little hemlock thrown in. Enough I think to compliment the two or so cords of mill ends I have left over from last year. The driveway and storage area under the house looks more like a lumber yard than anything else these days. So we're all ready to tuck into fall and winter. The rains are coming, the summer is gone and the temperate rainforest will soon resume its verdant and lively rhythm.
