Apparently weather conditions are much worse in many areas of the State. According to the Fairbanks Daily News-Miner high winds and heavy snow are wreaking havok over much of the State. The storm that ripped through False Pass tore off roofs, collapsed sheds and sent an all-terrain vehicle tumbling down the street. A village public safety officer estimated that the winds topped out at more than 100 mph Wednesday afternoon. The medical clinic was one of the damaged buildings. The windows were blown out and the door bowed from the force of the wind sparking fears it would give. The door held, perhaps helped by an ambulance parked against it for support.

Bloody Bob and I have done historically authentic hunts together in the past, and he's one of the best hunters and woodsmen I know. I am greatly looking forward to an opportunity to get out into the woods with him again.
For now, I'm looking forward to getting off duty in a couple of hours, relaxing for a bit after supper, and then getting some well earned sleep. What used to be my "place of employment" truly has turned into a workplace, and at times more of a workplace than anyone might bargain for. If things are hectic now I should probably dread summer, when everyone and everything about this remote industrial facility becomes twice as busy.
