Happy Halloween

Now thatīs a pumpkin!
Now thatīs a pumpkin!
This has got to be one of the strangest holidays we cling to - no? Trying to make all the "scary" stuff - fun... well it didnīt start that way - but basically thatīs what we do now. Which is an encouraging thought really - too bad we can start transforming some of the īrealī scary stuff in the world today into fun.

Personally, Iīve never been much for Halloween - I donīt like dressing up in costumes and what with all the risks to kids these days from maniacs - you canīt even give out anything healthy - it must all be junk store-bought and shrink wrapped with a triple safety seal... (in the Back of my Head I hear Homer Simpson saying "mmmmm junk food...") cīest la vie I suppose.

Regardless - we had a wicked storm last night - wind gusts topping 80Kmph - I can hardly wait for our forest walk this morning (we take the dog every morning) to see what all was brought down last night. Iīm attaching the Halibut Bank (an ODAS in the middle of the Straight of Georgia) wind graph so you can see the progression.

FYI: 16m/s works out to About 31Knots
