Super moon wishes, summer sunshine solace

The “supermoon” last night was the closest the moon will be to earth this year, according to earthsky.org.

“That is just beautiful,” my lovely bride says of the full moon rising over Mount Rainier last night.

We watched the moon break the horizon at 8:40 p.m. just behind the rocky outline of the mountain’s northern slope, as a lazy breeze blew through Drayton’s Passage. With a plate of sliced Swiss cheese and cut apples and an ice-cold beer to wash it all down, it was a wonderful way to end the day.

And boy, that was a large moon.

According to earthsky.org, “This full moon is not only the closest and largest full moon of the year. It also presents the moon’s closest encounter with Earth for all of 2013. The moon will not be so close again until August 2014. In other words, it’s not just a supermoon. It’s the closest supermoon of 2013.”

Well, super.

We woke up to early morning fog but the weather geeks say it will be a hot day. Boats on the hook on Von Geldern Cove was a lovely sight on my commute this morning.

Good morning Longbranch.

It was foggy and 55 degrees when I drove to work this morning. But it looks like our morning mist is already beginning to burn off. The sun is out, for the most part, and the weather geeks say our high today will top out at 81.

Enjoy the day because it will be the warmest day of the week.
