Caveat: Tree #653

This tree (bottom center left) has two leaves left, at the very top. I saw it in Klawock the other day.

Caveat: Tree #652

This tree was also in Klawock yesterday. The mountain in the far distance in the lower left of the photo is in fact the back side of Sunnahae mountain, which we can see from our house.
I spent part of the day putting the torsion bar and wheels back on the boat trailer, having gotten new hubs installed by Chet in town. You can see the shiny new hub in the picture.

Caveat: Tree #649

This tree (which tree? – some group of trees, perhaps?) saw an unprecedented traffic jam on Port Saint Nicholas Road. This was due to the landslides and a flagger being present to direct traffic through the sporadically-open single lane as many excavators and dumptrucks did their duties to clear debris.

Caveat: Poem #1549 “As hills will do”

Yesterday it rained
and rained and rained and rained more
so hills sought the sea.

– a pseudo-haiku. Here is a picture taken by my neighbor Jeri, looking across the inlet from the top of 10-mile hill toward the major landslide at 4.3 mile on the road – you can see the brown gash in the mountain. All that dirt and rocks and trees came down and crossed the road. It just missed houses on either side of it.

Caveat: griddier than before

The power coming on interrupted our wood-stove-cooked dinner. Not clear if it’s fully restored or temporary. No news on road closure. More later, with a tree picture if power stays on.
…from phone.

Caveat: off the grid

Multiple landslides on PSN, road to town is closed, possibly for days. Power is out. Arthur and I are fine but somewhat off the grid. I will only check email / text / fb messages sporadically, to save charge on phone. Blog may not see updates. But we are fine.

Caveat: Tree #647

This tree is also across the river from the clinic in Klawock. “The Clinic in Klawock” sounds like the title of an Seussian epic poem.

Caveat: Tree #645

This tree has a freshly be-snowed Harris Peak in the background.
We had our first frosty nights, the last two nights. I figured the growing season is therefore done, and I started ripping out the moldy vegetation. I found some vegetables – small potatoes, micro onions, bite-sized carrots, anemic leeks. I am thinking of trying to make an “Alaskan garden stew” with them.

Caveat: Tree #644

This tree is in town. There is one of those ubiquitous shipping containers lurking nearby.

Caveat: Tree #643

This tree has been featured before, but now it includes eagle (lower right, perched on the “dock arch”).
