    Yikes it's been wet

    It's been a very wet month here in the Northwest, we have a new record for rainfall in the month of March with one more day to add to it.

    Today's Soccer game

    Well at least one sport in the spring doesn't stop for rain. But the ground was so soft they could not keep their footing very well and by the end of the first half the divots on the field were large enough to stop the ball when it would hit them. I told the coach that they need to get the...

    The rain stopped for a baseball game

    Mt Rainier pre-sunrise light

    I hate getting up early in the morning, so it took me getting a 24hr overtime shift to get me out before sunrise. It was well worth the effort as I left early enough to stop and get some pictures of the pre-sunrise light that lit up the sky around Mt Rainier and Clear Lake. After I had taken a...

    High School Basketball

    Well I missed most of the season being down sick first with a nasty norovirus (great way to loose 13# in 3 days) and then shortly after that I got the real flu (lost another 11#) which between the two pretty much had me on the porcelain throne, in bed or on the couch for six weeks. My first...

    I got above the fog...

    .. well, for a few minutes before it obliterated everything again. Mt Rainier from way up in the forests to the west of the mountain. Got one shot before the fog set in at my first view point... 1. Then the fog moved in, everything gone or going quickly... 2. All the fog made it hard to...

    A few shots from yesterday's game. Before the game there was a huge thunderstorm that rolled through with lightning and instant thunder, dropped an inch of hail on the ground in about 20 minutes and then turned to a downpour of rain. by the time the game started it had blown through with bright...

    The mountain is huge

    A shot I was looking for to go along with a news bit on Mt Rainier changing it's policy on using Chinook helicopters for hoisting during rescues high on the mountain. I hate when I don't label my files right and have to manually search through them, who'd a thought this would be in a file...

    I'm being robbed again.

Well duh...... "No $#it lady, but get the hell off my property and don't let the gate you walked...
