About This Blog

This is yet another incarnation of my personal blog. Here's where you can read about what I do when I'm not at work: hiking, seeing plays and other shows, eating, traveling, etc.

It’s the most wonderful time of the year

Posted by gck Sunday, November 3, 2013

…NOT. People always think that rain is the worst part about Seattle weather, but it’s not true. Lack of sunlight is the worst part. During daylight hours, we already get a measly amount of sunlight coming through the thick layer of clouds that blankets the sky from October until June. It’s just rubbing salt in the wound to see complete darkness when we leave work each day. So while I was happy to get an extra hour of sleep today, I am more unhappy about this:


Oh well.

Snow and low temperatures in the mountains also means I’m done hiking for the year. I’ve been pretty behind on my blog entries, but I’ll have some catch up trip reports coming soon.

In other news, I finally got a new camera! The Canon EOS M dropped low enough in price to make it worth buying. I might regret it once I see all the Black Friday deals, but I didn’t want to wait that long because I need to figure out how to use the camera properly before my trip in December. Sadly, I didn’t get the camera before my last hike, so instead, I’ve been practicing on my cat, who hates it.


He’s an attractive subject to photograph, though! And trickier than hiking scenery because he doesn’t want to stay still.

Yeah, I guess this was just an excuse to post cat pictures. More content coming up soon!
