From Solid To Liquid

It was a little presumptive and naive on my part to think that the loads of snow we got recently were going to stay. It seems that the mood swings in the Juneau weather are such that change is the only constant, much like the ebb and flow of the tides, like here in Gastineau Channel.

Sandy Beach

The outgoing tide creates a network of intricate channels and abstract patterns along Sandy Beach on Douglas Island, with the reflection of the snow-capped ridges on the mainland adding depth and a touch of color.

High Winds Pound Southeast Alaska

A couple walks their dogs along Sandy Beach in Douglas yesterday, undeterred by hurricane-force gusts that pounded channeled areas in Juneau and Douglas. The wind gusts exceeded 80 mph at the Douglas Harbor yesterday morning. The high winds, coupled with cold temperatures, caused windchills down to 20 below and colder. In Valdez, hurricane-force winds forced a shutdown of the port where Alaska oil is loaded onto tankers.
