And One More Picture from Work ...

Here is another pirated picture I decided I needed to share. I don't know if this small picture really gives you a feel for what they're doing. I've put the whole photo in my photo album (6 Spring) on yahoo. Download it and put it on your desktop to get the big picture to open. That slushy sea ice they're working in is COLD!

This is 2 of the divers on our island repair team in the water. They're in the moat that we've dug around one side of the island, so we can replace the gravel that's washing away. Doesn't this look like fun! Here it is, May 22nd, still snowing & slushy & cold. Some days I really can't figure out why I'm still up here, and I work inside an office.
This picture is completeness of Dave Maguire. Thanks Dave!

Just a few Spring Pictures

I've been collecting pictures the past few days, sent to me by various people. I decided I'd share a few of them, just because :-)

Here are 2 taken sometime early this morning, we're doing some construction work out on the bench of the island. You can't tell if it's sunrise or sunset, since they're both the same. The sun doesn't actually go below the horizon right now and pretty soon won't get this close. These were taken by Ray Bonds, one of our crane operators, I thought they were pretty. You can see the ice is thawing, mostly on top. It won't be much longer (a day or 2) and we will have to close our ice road until one can be built next year.

My sister Mary sent me these 2. The first is her husband Bill (with his flying cap on) getting to solo in Chris's Stearman Bi-Plane. It does look like fun!
And this one is my nephew Matt and his buddies going to their Sr. Prom. Mary says from left to right is Jordan, Matt, Bobby, Christopher and Jimmy.
