    It's foggy this morning. It's foggy every morning.

    I am FROM Duvall. About 2 miles. That is not a lot of FROM.
    That said, my weather report is much different from Evan's.
    We have no fog. It is clear, a balmy, albeit, rain soaked morning,
    with warm temperatures in the high 40's. I have not seen clouds of swarming insects over the water course as yet, but perhaps later in the morning after I have had my gourmet cereal and coffee.

    Perhaps a BWO will find time to share the morning with me.

    Mostly they're a bunch of ne'er do wells in Outer Duvall. I wonder if you could arrange an introduction. Sounds like someone I might could learn something from but I'm not too sure about them fancy imported hooks.

    I visited the Paris of Cherry Valley again today. It was raining.

    Another day, perhaps another trip to Duvall is in the cards.

    What is the weather like this morning, Evan?

    Any snow in the forecast?

    At one time, I loved to fish in the snow. Now, not so much, but it is fun to a degree. At least until the old bones start complaining.

    Well, now we know folks. Good for fishing. Fish like water.
    Rain is water. Rain + Water = Fish. What could be wrong with
    that.

    I have been entertaining the idea of going to stand in the river this week but the calendar has other ideas. Going to be a busy week.
    I have no idea if the salmon have cleared the river as yet. But I should check it out to see. Maybe Friday will work for me.

    Especially when the water is the Seine River that flows through the Paris of the west... oops, I meant Snoqualmie R. through Duvall.
    The region there is just so bucolic and serene, but at the same time so utterly sophisticated, it's easy to get a little carried away!

    And that big ole cement block sitting in the river bed is inspirational.

    Like a Roman ruin of some sort, only the Romans didn't make it to
    Duvall. Neither did the Franks and Gauls come to think on it. At least not until after 1913. Prior to that Duvall was not Duvall.
    It was something else. Hmmm, I guess it is still something else.

    Yes, but to much rain causes the river to run high and dirty and over it's banks to form Lake Snoqualmie.

    Lake Snoqualmie ain't dirty. Jim. Why folks swim in it.


    ED: Update. May not get to Duvall today. Going to Everett instead.
    Wrong direction. Everett is nice but since they closed down the pulp mill,
    it just ain't the same. Tacoma has lost her aroma also.
