As has been the case the past few nights the moon has been gorgeous!
All is calm with minimal ice flowing past Napaimute. The water level has not changed since this morning; it had dropped at least a foot overnight.
After days of now ice going by, something upriver let loose. As of 8:30 this evening small intermittent chunks began passing, then they got more common and larger. Now some 300 feet long are passing.
The water level has dropped a few inches…for now.
I talked to Eric Morgan in Chuathbaluk and he said their ice is now moving. Word is that the ice in Aniak is also moving down the slough and piling up on the dike.
Not much has changed over the past few days. It did snow a little as you can see, and the temperature is around 30 degrees at 8:00 AM. It’s calm as could be.
The jam upriver still hasn’t given out, so we’ve got only a little slush floating past. Water level hasn’t varied much – partly due to the cool weather.
