They call it rainy Wednesday

It rained
(more than a inch counting both storms)

And after a brief respite
it will rain some more
and more still on Thursday

then the winds start up again
and it's in the 70's

Who's running this winter anyway?

I suppose it's better than having to break thru
the ice on the well
to get some water for my morning tea

at least there's surf
overlapping NW swells in fact
from Canada to Mexico
going off

Most of the serious runoff
has been neutralized by now
except the runoff
with a half life
but we won't discuss it

So have a go!

All I've Found (George Greenough) - Sea Movies from on Vimeo.

A sweet bit of video from George Greenough for your viewing pleasure this morning. If you look closely you'll notice the fins on the long boards of the era went from the wooden "D fins" to fish inspired glass "Greenough fins" by the end of the clip. Off course George had been riding Velo for a while by then but the change in fins marked a serious fork in the road for stand up surfboards. In a couple of years boards would be half as long and surfers would be free to surf anywhere on the wave face. It was a great time.
