Tuesday, August 4, 2009


There are numerous fires burning around fairbanks, including one alarming one that just sprung up some 30 miles from our house. It was the driest July in history, I believe I heard. Tonight it has been fairly clear down at our house, but the smoke is rolling in and has made the sky a wild yellow color. This photo is with the white balance set at daylight, which would yield true colors on a sunny day, and slightly blueish colors on a cloudy day.

Finished re-staining the deck. I even sanded it first. After just two years it was pretty faded, but I think the second coat will last longer since the first was on bare wood. It was also worn from construction, and some boards had drips, so it looks really nice now. I also like a second coat because it gets into the screw holes, the first one was done before installation so it was less protected.
