Picture of the Day
May 8, 2023
here in the Great Bend of Hood Canal, in the lee of the southern tip
of Olympic mountain range, we reside in a kind of vortex, a dynamic
microclimate of shifting winds and ocean-effect precip that defies
weather forecasts--like today's abrupt turn from clear skies to sudden
sunshowers that threatened to douse the brushpile fire we'd just ignited.
recently leafed-out trees provided some cover as we were treated to our
first rainbow, raindrops lit by low sun falling like sparks from the sky.
