Yep.

I wonder what a military craft named after a squid would look like?  Something Romulan comes to mind.


How about this death trap?

I hope at least they drilled holes to put dual ignition into what looks like a Briggs-Stratton rotor tiller motor.

Slip off that little platform and you become ground round. You wouldn't get me on one of those things.


I did like the folding helicopter. That was really cool.

Looks like a better day for feeding a woodstove if you ask me.  Looks like more **** on toast coming our way too.



Ordinarily, notwithstanding COVID, I'd be running boats in and out of Hot Springs Cove right now taking an inside route, except for the white-knuckle portion getting around Sharp Pt, especially in 3 - 4 m seas on a strong ebb tide.  But not in this weather.  The amount of rain we're getting right now is enough to make the hot spring turn into a warm spring - the logs and boulders ocean swells can dump into the pools kinda take some of the charm away too.

Better to just eat a can of beans jump into the hot-tub instead and it's almost like being there.  Especially with driving wind, rain and trees bent over sideways all around.

Windy is calling for up to 13 m swells in the North Pacific with 8 - 10 m waves reaching our coast later this week.

At least here on the left coast it seems we are getting a steady stream of airflow from Hawaii. A little damp but fairly warm for January. Happy New Year.

I was able to ride my bike all through December in Winnipeg and I just got back from an extended New Year's Day ride, and I'm not even a winter cyclist.

Extremely windy here today. Flags standing straight out. We were walking downtown, and the wind blowing through the upper floors of an under construction apartment tower was making this otherworldly wail. It was the most eery sound.

It's almost as if sometimes it gets really hot and then other times its not as hot.
