Rain in the rain forest

It seems to be a mistake to show too many sunny days on this blog. This is a rain forest. There has been constant rain all day.

When I moved out here the shoes that I wore to meetings had leather soles. They were always stuffed with newspapers to dry out. I learned that in town I should have shoes with rubber soles. I bought the largest and most sturdy umbrella I could find.

Today, it is very windy too. That makes me concerned about the possibility of a power failure.

Here on Bowen Island these are my outdoor slip-on shoes, and I’m likely to wear a backcountry rain jacket and not use the umbrella.

I’ve always felt silly wearing any kind of a hat. Mountain travel taught me to wear a hat with a peak to shade my eyes from the sun. On a rainy day that peak keeps the rain off my glasses.

These are small adaptations.

    and I’ve learned to enjoy rain and storms by wearing truly waterproof warm clothing and gumboots with insoles for warmth and comfort – I’ve even got a sou’wester (that name tells you what the prevailing winds are back east).

    Have a fun day!
