When there is not much to do, one seems to pay attention to the weather. Especially when the house is shaking. Like today, when Bethel set record highs with a balmy 42 degrees. One asks the question: What is going on? Last week, it was -29 below, with -52 below wind chills in Bethel. Today, 65 mph wind and rain, rain! What is going on? In our three years in Kipnuk, this is the strangest weather we have had. Twice this winter season (since snow fell) we have had south winds and rain, with lots of snow melt off. Before Christmas, the ground had about 1/2 inch of snow. It looked like spring! I have not chipped ice for water yet and it is January 19. Crazy, just crazy.
To make it all much worse, the satellite is shaking like a leaf. No TV, errrr
