Clear except for the smoke

Today is nice, cold but clear. But then, in the glory of the fall afternoon sun, warmth radiating down for maybe the last time this year,the leaf burners and the wood stoves start, and we are engulfed in smoke. Might as well have wildfires lapping at our roofs! Seriously folks, it's the 21st century! Aren't we supposed to be beyond primitive technology (i.e. fire) and on to modern healthy living? There's a little box you can buy and when you put it on your wall, your house gets warm. Magic! See below.

Big change in weather

I believe we have seen the end of our lovely 70 degree October days.  It is windy today and rain is coming.

Fog through the trees near town.

Foggy field yesterday morning.

Fog and fall colors

Apple trees are really changing colors.  
We can not see our hills for the fog.

 Today started out cold with lots of fog. It went from winter coat 38 degrees during the night, to tee shirt 76 today. 

Morning fog is slowly replaced by sun. Nearby hill is almost visible.

Rainy Saturday

A huge UFO-style lenticular cloud came in yesterday afternoon, obscuring most of the sky. These indicate weather change is coming. Today, a little rain, 0.13 inches so far around 1:00 pm.

Friday's lenticular cloud, too big for the camera

Today, fat raindrops falling off patio roof

Rain pummels pond

Coast Trip

Many tons of Bull Kelp have washed on to the beach at Port Orford

Minus tide and sunny weather made this a really great day. Humbug mountain in the background.

Lots of pretty caves that you can walk through.

We had to coax these seagulls to share our lunch, they were the shiest bunch I've ever seen.  

Clouds came in at dusk.

Pretty sand patterns
