October SuntallI don't know what the statistics say, but Vancouver's summer and early autumn weather in 2006 has been spectacular, by far the least rainy and sunniest I can remember, and I've lived here my whole life. It's nearly unknown to have had only a day or two of rain this late into October. It's bound to end soon, but I've been saying that for weeks, and I'm still biking to work.

Of course this could lead to snowpack and water supply worries next spring, and maybe it's a sign of coming global climate apoclypse, but for now, this year, in this lovely city, it has been a wonderful denouement to the summer season.

The Gore-Tex is waiting; I hope it waits a bit longer.
