Boosting the Signal

If you haven't yet discovered The HillyWood Show on UTube, you're really missing something. I'm absolutely blown away by the professional quality of these "home movies". They're just stunning!

Their Twilight Parody

Their Dark Knight Parody.

Olympic Peninsula Line Men

Know that we love you. And appreciate all that you'll be doing over the next four days to keep our electricity on. Stay warm.

Yes, another storm is coming in with high winds and flooding. It's already blowing, but the main system will hit tonight, with predicted winds up to 50mph, gusts to 75. And Monday brings in an even stronger storm. (sighs) But hey, it's winter. We're prepared.

Going into town, everything was closed but the Forks Outfitters. Which is where everybody was going to get supplies. The main drag was very dark under even darker skies ... except for on bit of brightness. Dazzled By Twilight. Which was still open.

I suppose even sparkly vampires need supplies ...

Aaaaah! Hail!!!

I may not be impressed by 9 feet of rain in a year. But hail impresses me.
Which ... is almost embarrassing.
Because I've SEEN some of the hail that a few of you have to deal with.
And our hail only comes in very small, to moderately small, bean-sized pieces.
And ... well ...
And I'm going to start wearing my leather hat again.
Because it may be small, but it still bring'th the big ow'ie if you're not prepared.

Just a note to any Twlighters reading this Blog

Dazzled By Twilight is having a small contest over at Facebook. The 1000th person to join gets a prize. So, if you're interested -- Go Here.

In other news, we have gotten an amazing number of thunder storms this year. In all the time I've been here, I think I've experienced only 3 or 4 thundery storms. But this year alone, I think I've up'd that total another 5!

The Cullens should be so pleased.

Best wishes --
I'm off to eat ribs! Yum!

I love this place.

Tonight the surf is particularly high. And that means that we can walk outside and hear the surf crashing against the beach five miles away.

I don't know why, but that just makes me so happy. I'm damn lucky to be here.

Ah Hah! First Little Storm of the Season!

We're in the midst of our first storm. And the rain was coming down so hard and fast that, for a while, it looked like a snow storm out there.

After watching it for a few minutes, I tried to get a picture. But I missed the moment. (Sighs)

I really need to get a newer digital camera one day. My poor, 10 year old, Nikon takes 60+ seconds to warm up between photos, and man! It is frustrating to be standing there, going "Com'on! Com'on! Hurry up!" at it, and miss your photo opportunity just as it clicks on.

But hey! Decent little storm! Pretty steady gusts in the high 40 mph. And rain too! What fun!

Yeee Haaah!

Ah, our first Special Weather Statement is in. So, it's official. It's Winter.

Luckily, it doesn't look too bad. Just lots and lots of rain, some flooding, and winds between 30-50mph. Which is fully do'able.

And on the off chance that Mother Nature pulls a fast one, and we get unexpected high winds -- which happens once or twice a season -- we have all the required LED emergency lights, extra candles, firewood, food and drink. So we're set.

I'm actually a bit excited about it. The weather just hasn't been wild enough for me this year ... Heh.
