May 12 – Saturday Update – My Last From Napaimute Till Next Year

Woke up to some fresh snow and very little ice passing by – more wood than ice.  The water level hasn’t changed much in the past few days.

Eric Morgan Jr. will come up tonight by boat and take me back to Aniak where I’ll have to stay until I can cross the slough, hopefully in a day or two, until I can get across to my apartment.

May 10 Update 8:00 AM

Relatively little ice and wood, although there is still a decent amount of wood passing by for you downriver folks.  Even though we had a little rain last night the water level has changed minimally.


Ducks and geese are heading west and several peregrine falcons are nesting up behind the Chapel.
