It goes with the territory here.

Just got the bottom cleaned on Mark's boat and a new bow line.

It doesn't look as though there is any damage to the boat. I'll give him a call to let him know where to look for his boat when he comes over again.

Well, the head of our small bay was really jammed up this morning. Pretty much everything was junk, so I pushed it out. There is one long log which has been creosoted, it might have been used as a telephone pole in a past life.

I believe one of my neighbours was looking for one of these, so I'll get that tied up as well. Other than that it's just firewood.

Keith, that is one beautiful photo, that has got to make you feel good to see something that beautiful the first thing in the morning. Hopefully things will go your way for a few days so you can get things done you want to. I agree with Barb, your neighbors are luck to have you for a neighbor.

Our immediate next door neighbour just showed up to check on the damage. I think everything is ok, just some branches on the ground.

My neighbour and one of his buddies were in & we had a chat. He's going to see if Mark's line is still out there for his float. He did have a double float in place earlier, so it might be that the lower one is still there. We can't see that until the tide is much lower, so I'll keep an eye out.

Actually, he's here quite a bit all year round, but just wanted to check for any damage today. He lives over on Gabriola, and apparently they got as much wind as we did yesterday.

The creosote log which washed in yesterday may come in handy to make a float. So I've decided to keep it here.

It looks like there may be some long logs over at Pirate's on DeCourcey, and if the weather is OK tomorrow I might make a trip over to see what I can find.

Cool windstorm photos - thanks for posting them. That pre-dawn picture was absolutely stunning.

It's so bizarre to see all those lovely big logs washing up - all that washes up around here is lobster traps (modern metal ones, so you can't even use 'em for kindling).

You're welcome.

If you guys had a logging industry back there, you would get logs blowing in as well.

If I get over to DeCourcey tomorrow, I'll take the camera. Even if I don't drag something back there should still be a fair bit of stuff over there.

Check this out! Colorado Springs yesterday. There is some language so "viewer be ware".
The narrator and cameraman is a friend (at Fort Carson) of my son-n-law.

Enjoy!

Some people just won't learn, I think the last 4X4 could have made it on up if he hadn't stopped. Man oh man
