Last Pre-Halloween Photos

Ghostly shadows on the outdoor Chesterfield at God's Mountain Resort

We are ready for Halloween at Athens Creek Lodge

And at the Hooded Merganser Restaurant Penticton
Yesterday President Obama was handing out candies at his Halloween Party at the White house as the snowflakes came down. Today here it is raining a bit but all is not white as in Pennsylvania. More extreme weather from global warming. Another interesting consequence is the increase in cyanobacteria because of climate change. At our Pigeon Lake in Alberta they had problems this summer, swimmers got a rash from it. Now I read that they have it in the Ottawa river. On a more positive note there are at least twelve new energy efficient cars coming out next year, mostly hybrids. One goes 50 miles on the battery, then the petrol engine kicks in just to recharge the battery, not to drive the car...

Halloween only arrived in Norway a few years ago and all the kids, who are now raised on American films and cartoons, quickly caught on. In contrast, I remember Halloween in my childhood England, as Mischief Night when lanterns were carved out of turnips and we collected money towards fireworks for 5th November.

Happy Halloween

I absolutely love the photo of the shadows on the Chesterfield!

In the UK we have a growing problem with blue-green algae (which I have just discovered is the same thing as cyanobacteria - I can see the 'cyan' link there). Kayakers are warned of the danger of swallowing lake water if they capsize.
