September

Warm and clear. Our most fog-free month. Our warmest month. Nothing in the yards and gardens wants to quit. The fauna, the flora, they just keep going as the light gets shorter, the dark gets longer, the world cools toward what even here we call winter.

    Wow. That Oregon-Cal tilt was certainly a wet one, but I didn’t realize that the rain was so much out of the ordinary elsewhere. Thom said it was being called a typhoon. Is this storm the remains of an eastern Pacific tropical storm? We’ve seen that down here, and it is remarkable when it happens.

    Local weather guy Mark Nelsen this morning around 9 am: “the remnants of Typhoon Pabuk have made it all the way across the Pacific and what’s left will spin up into a powerful low pressure center the next 12 hours.” Story of the day will be wind, though mostly north of here: http://1.usa.gov/15EbiKU
