You can always tell Pollock Season is about to begin when you see the Swan Net Guys out repairing the nets in front of the hotel. It may not look like much to you, but those nets bring in millions of dollars of product a year, Much more than Crab, and along with the Fisherman and the processors are the economic lifeblood of this community. Remember the next time you are having some Long John Silvers Pollock Fillets, or a fish sandwich at McDonald's, Wendy's or Burger King that your meal had it's start right here
After the past few days of most of the residents hiding inside from the strong storm, a lot of people's eyes were drawn skyward today by an almost textbook example of a AltoCumulus Lenticular Cloud.
it was either that or the Aliens have finally come for Veda!
Speaking of the Storm, it was a good one, though by no means the worse one I have seen up here by a long shot. still we had 65-75 mph winds for a day or so and as you can see in the above photos the rain was really intense and melted all the snow at ground level. Yep, that means mud!
Most of my photos did not turn out for the storm but this video is ok, though it does not show the upward falling rain as well as I hoped.
We did have a nice little bit of snow on the ground and it was all frozen solid which while cold also means LESS MUD SO LESS MESS for me and my housekeepers. On Sunday and Monday before the storm it was just beautiful with lots of pink in the sky at sunrise.
You can always tell the island is up to something when it is pink in the morning. It was a bit pink this morning too, but nothing is forecast for a few days so I am just going to enjoy the good weather while we have it and stock up the fridge and kitchen cabinets for the next storm.
