The last days of September should be pretty decent. We should get lots of breaks in the clouds between now and Sunday. With the weekend looming like the best days of all.

Monday however will bring October showers and perhaps a start to a chilling the air that I’ve seen forecast for October, and Fall in general for a little while now. (La Nina is back)

Enjoy the breaks. Maybe use the time to plug any leaks that might have popped up during out abnormally strong couple storms of the past week.

On another note, it looks like my ‘HD’ webcam has kicked the bucket. I’m not totally surprised as it was an experiment in how robust a 7 year old DSLR could be when taking a picture every minute. The answer… Not very. So I will be switching back to the old webcam for now while I search around for another victim/guinea pig camera to try out for the right price.
