Woke Up on Monday to Unalaska/Dutch Harbor's Version of the Snowapoclypase that hit the East Coast this weekend. The Schools were cancelled, City Government was closed until Noon and of COURSE at the Airport all flights were Cancelled. We were without Internet for most of the night and all morning and the Long Distance Phone lines were also out of commission. You really only realize how isolated you are here when that all occurrs at once. Instead of pictures which just convey the images, thought I'd post some video.
This was taken about 9am from one of the Employee Entrances at the Hotel.
This is about 9:30 AM on the way back from the Alaska Ship Store.
And this is the Same walk 6 Hours Later. Dutch Harbor/Unalaska, if you don't like the weather just wait 5 minutes and check again!
Today it is Raining Pretty good and alot of the snow is just melting away. Might even be gone within a day or so. Got to Love this island.
On the Deadliest Catch Front Just Saw Keith and the Wizard Crew in town yesterday, The NW was here this weekend, and the CM is still out fishing. Looks like it will be an early end to the season, as the quotas were cut for Opilio this year.
Hope everyone on the East Coast has a Nice Melt off like we are!
