    Here, I had the first rain (during the night to this morning as well as a thunderstorm) since early this year. I canít remember exactly when the last rain happened, sometime in April I think? That might be a good sign, last year I donít think there was rain until November and not much then or later. We could use a wet year and we tend to get them every few years. Around here, there is almost never rain in June through August, usually not September unless it is the start of a wet rainy season. More likely in October but November is when it usually gets going.

    Nicholas looks to be more of a rain/flood event than a strong winds threat, but so was Harvey.

    Here, first frost of the season, -3C this morning, and three weeks earlier than last year.

    Sunny in the 20's maybe and a nice breeze which means more piling of wood and checking the garden.

    Stormy! Power's been out for about 40 minutes but we've got a "whole house" generator. Which doesn't include the microwave, so I've had to improvise for dinner.

    ETA: Wow, more than an hour-and-a-half now. We absolutely LOVE where we live, but if anyone should ask what's the one thing we don't like about it, the answer would be "the wind". I used to say that the next land to obstruct it looking out the Strait of Juan de Fuca would be Japan. Then I drew a line on Google Earth and found I was wrong. It was Taiwan.

    And of course, today's wind is actually from the south, not the west. Not a good day to ride on the ferry to Whidbey. Been there, done that. Green water over the bow.

    In the "makes me happy department", I love that we specified the generator when we had the house built. And that after discovering it omitted some things, that we had the electricians come out and add them. Internet and TV are covered. Lighting is covered. Heat isn't practical, but the electric blankets work.

    On Monday I'll call the electricians and see about adding the microwave and kitchen faucet*. Generator is 10KW, shouldn't be a problem.

    *It's one of these fancy ones that you just wave your hand under and the water runs. But it's on the circuit with the disposal, which isn't covered. It will be.

    I decided to try calling the utility again, despite knowing it'd be useless. First the automated voice said i had no outage. Then that there were 66 customers out in my area. There are hundreds here.
    Eventually I found an option to allow me to talk to the answering service. I got a very nice lady who couldn't help at all but we had a nice chat. Really, she was great!
    Then I decided I'd stretch my legs, go out on the deck, and look at the lack of lights. It took me a minute to realize the neighbor's porch lite was on.
    Oops!

    Today was a nice and sunny day and I took a day off of being in the Sun the only time outdoors was checking the mail. Tomorrow scattered showers and maybe a thunderstorm and the next two days sunny but elections stuff. Election day will probably be nice and sunny and everyone coming into the fire hall where the elections are taking place reminding us all say long. As long as this time when I get home in the middle of the night there isn't a pack of coyotes howling across the road.

    About 20C out fairly clear skies piling more wood, right now I have about 30 cm space to move between the old wood and the new wood.

    Repeat of yesterday but cloudy periods and I thought it was going to rain a couple of times, about 95% done a certain project, a lot of it is spread out and the road shed is getting pretty full.

    The afternoon started out sunny and I did little piling of wood then decided to try to fix a minor plumbing problem. After dealing with a stripped screw in the tap and another minor issue it is done. Now it is raining out and rain for tomorrow and a mix on Friday and some on Saturday.

    Wet!
    My area is, of course, know for rain, but what many folks don't understand is that while it rains often, it seldom rains hard. Our annual rainfall is less than many places not considered rainy.

    I was expecting rain but it is now just mostly cloudy with blue spots, legs feel tired for some reason and looks like I have to fine tune a fix a made yesterday. And the auction is coming this weekend but has not called me, I guess they are giving me a break.

    Sunny highs in the 20's and lows in single digits all week long maybe I will get something done before the next auction next weekend when the auction company comes back.

    It started with sun and clouds with some misty spots in morning, then later fog and clouds came in and in the afternoon clouds and at time it looked like it was going to rain. Tried to figure what to do first and while doing that watched some Midsomer Murders and figured out I should get things rearranged and more organized than now before winter comes, and the next few days are going to be cooler with rain over the weekend.

    Today after a couple of days of rain the skies looked they were starting to clear up so I went outdoors and dumped some vege peelings in the back field there were hundres of poplar leaves all over the place, No enjoying some turkey soup, I guess it must be fall.

    Overcast with sunny breaks all day and again tomorrow, just puttering doing some stuff around the house like dealing with this apple tree that has kind of fallen, it is caught by another apple tree and helping to clean the chimney. Waiting for the auction company to call for this weekend it seems like I have done about 20 of them this year.

    Big storm system here in the PNW. I'm hearing terms like "Bomb Cyclone" and "Atmospheric River." At least two deaths, caused by a tree falling on someone's car. We here in Port Townsend have had it milder than most, very little wind yesterday although it's windy this morning.

    We finally had serious rain this weekend. There was a sprinkle a bit back, but this was the first serious rain since April. Still unclear whether this will be a good or poor rainy season - the rainy season normally doesn’t really get going strong until November, and even then we can have limited rain for a time, then heavy rain in the early spring.

    In a word - wet. With more words - the wettest October in 50 years and likely to end up over twice the monthly average rainfall. Currently sitting on 95 mm (3.7") compared to the 51.5 mm average and with more rain in sight. We are going to be well over the yearly average rainfall as well. The dams are even starting to creep up a bit at 61% capacity compared to 50% at the same time last year.

    Sunny with bit of a breeze, went to talk to the new neighbors and took a walk in the woods. In the woods there was some dark fur that took off away from me, maybe a bear. The cell phone battery is dead so no pictures, I should get a new one.
