Oh yeah, gimme that cold, dark, stormy weather any day. Beats the hell out of drinking in the pool w/ the babes.
At the risk of giving away one of the most little-known advantages of living in the PNW, the girls up here get cold.* Now how do you think we resolve this "problem?"
While you all are down there looking at the babes in the pool, we are up here actively keeping them warm.* Having lived for some 30 years in a place where we spent a lot of time looking at the babes in the pool (ocean), I am convinced now*that*folks*in the cold climates actually*have the better deal

As you know I'm somewhat familiar with your part of the world but have no knowledge of PWI. With Admiralty having one of the largest concentration of Brown Bears on the planet, does PWI have any? Do you experience the salmon runs close to Thorne Bay? What wildlife is found on your island?
The last time I was on Admiralty, I took these at the end of Hood Bay.
The Brown Bears are mostly on the ABC islands. Admiralty, Baranof and Chichagof islands. On Prince of Wales Is we have no brown bears but quite a few Black Bears. We're having a King Salmon Derby now and the usual late summer and fall runs of other Salmon species. The last time we were in Angoon we saw a brownie on the beach just below the store on our way in to the boat harbor. We have lots of deer. Almost daily we have deer in our yard. They don't mind being 12 to 15' away from us. We have lots of Eagles. And they DO have good eyes. One of our friends feeds them from her float house. She raises her hand high up with a fish (herring) in her hand and they see her over a mile away launching out of trees on the other side of the bay and fly directly to her. We have at least 20 float houses on the bay. In the fall there are lots of dead fish on the beach and floating in the water.
