Pineapple Express

Pineapple express makes me think of Hawaii, warm sunshine, lovely beaches and tall drinks. But today, it is totally different, it refers to our weather system!! Yes it is quite warm, 15 degrees but the rain that accompanies it is a torent, deluge, insane, record breaking, mess.
Whatever the airport official measurement is, the north shore can double, triple, or quadruple the number.  The average rainfall for Novemer is 180 mm, and the airport had 85mm by the 4th. Another big deluge is expected tonight.
I rushed out and took a picture after the rain,

excuse all the wires, you’d never think that there is a mountain behind that cloud.
Sunday, we went out to the boat, there was a dry spell for a couple of hours, although most of the bushes had lost their leaves, I wanted to concentrate on the small things. So I took closeups, remaining berries and leaves.

I should really carry my camera more often. The other day at Chapters, there was leaves on the sidewalk, all colours and shapes, it always gives my inner child a thrill. I love collecting leaves.
