86 and skunky

Can't tell you the year, but the temp hit 86 at least once for at least a day or two and frequently gets into the low 80s. The algae blooms, especially the cotton candy blobs, start happening more...

But, winter...

ethernet bridge to the mainland

If you can't get good internet on the island (and with DSL, is it ever good?) you could look into radio bridging to the mainland. You'd need a cooperative residence with cable internet on the...

The ironic futility of aggressive bubbling

This guy ran his bubbler 24x7 all winter. In the early spring, it melted all the way across the narrows and downwind by about 1/4 mile. As the ice started to break up, a north wind came up, pushing...

Climate change is local change

The hike in fees is one way to get more funds and DES needs more funds to help protect the state's natural resources. Locally, we can't do much about global climate change but DES can help us act...

Village Kitchen

If you ask, sometimes it is OK to park at the back of the Village Kitchen parking lot. There is only room for a few trailers and customers obviously have priority, but it is sometimes an option.

Innovative idea

The state owns the water that docks are in, so why not charge rent to help maintain water quality. DES needs more funds to get the job done, but the risk of permit rates getting out of control is...

Low Wake anyone?

We could use a low wake zone to go with the no wake zone. The no wake signs seem silly in some spots, but spot on in others. A no wake should mean it, but allowing up to 6mph in a low wake zone...

Here's another vote for keeping them outside over the winter. I used to carry them into the basement each winter and one year was too lazy to do it. No problem. There are a few spiders inside once...
