The rain is back... Go figure.

Was great high pressure system while it lasted, Kieran and I milked the last of the drystone with a lap up 'The Squamish Buttress' yesterday on my lunch break.

Now that the distracting dry rocks and sunshine are hidden in the clouds for bit hopefully I can catch up on work,

Since I don't have a photo from yesterday, I'll share this one.

That sounds like fun - a winter solstice bonfire and get together. What should we bring in the way of food, drink, logs (for the fire), etc?

On the evening of the 21st, to be exact?

No need for any logs Anders. The big guy gets a half cord of fir raging with a half gallon of diesel and there's enough heat to warm up the smoke bluffs. It's a roaster.

Sadly, the full moon isn't until the 28th. No chance of seeing this:

The exact combination of winter solstice, sunset and (visible) full moon would be magical. This photo was from December 9th last year, which was close but no cigar. I got a similar one on December 1st, 2009, which again was in the hockey rink. I wonder if I'll live long enough to get the trifecta?

Saw this when walking the dog yesterday in the rainy forest. It would appear that some climbers are standing up to the rain, fighting back so to speak but......Yea the tarp didn't do nuthin but make me laugh. A for effort though!
