Mt. Si Forest Fire
Posted by nbdog in Around the house on 27-Jul-2013
A small forest fire broke out some time early Friday afternoon on the south side of Mt. Si, about a mile and one half from our house. For those who have visited us, it’s about 400 feet up the slope of the mountain, perhaps a quarter of the mile east of the Little Si trail head. Fire fighters are still working on it this afternoon and we have a lot of smoke in the valley. It’s like having a big camp fire burning all the day and night.

Spring Golf, Good Start
After lots of practice last week, I got in two rounds on Monday and Tuesday this week shooting satisfying scores of 83 and 86 at Mt. Si. As I was sipping my morning coffee today the sky cleared and I decided to sneak in an unscheduled round. It was a truly scrumptious morning. I passed one threesome on the third hole and had the course to myself the rest of the way. After yesterday’s steady rain, the grass was an intense green and Mt. Si almost glowed in the early sunshine. I saw one eagle, a woodpecker and numerous ducks and geese. Over the back nine I fired up an all-Bach internet radio station on my cell phone and added some glorious music to the already bucolic setting. And I shot another 83!
