Another Retirement

Another one of our helicopter pilots is retiring this week. Larry has been working on our project since the island was under construction. I'll miss him and his stories. And I hope he loves being retired!

Snow Stops Installed

Here is a pic Paul sent me of the snow stops he installed on my roof. We had so much snow then rain that I got a lot of ice build up this winter. It slid down and pushed off the back side of the roof and bent the flashing. Paul got that fixed last week, but we decided to install the snow stops to hold the snow/ice in place. So next winter we probably won't get any ice :-)


Anyway, it makes the roof look kind of wavy. I like it.

Spring in Deadhorse

When I look out my window, all I see is blowing snow. But it must be spring because the bears are out of hibernation and roaming around. I guess there was a polar bear in the gravel pit on Friday, though I didn't see it. And Roger sent me this video and pic of a grizzly that hung around their shop all day, earlier this week. He's looking for something to eat but can't get into the dumpster.

New Perspective

I walked over to my neighbors today to take a few pics of her new deck. She wanted them e-mailed to her. Walking down her driveway I got a bit of a different view of the front of my house. You can see right through the front door, entryway and out through the doors on the deck.


















And there is still a lot of snow.

Next door - new steps & cable rail deck.
