Dramatic weather

Published November 20, 2003 / by Steve Berentson

It was a dramatic day in terms of weather Wednesday. This photograph of the Arctic Fjord was taken at the port drydock on the Guemes Channel as the sun poked through clouds in the late afternoon. Earlier weather included black clouds, wind and rain. Reports from the south and east told of hail and snow. It is, after all, late November.

About Steve Berentson
A fourth generation Skagit County native who was moved kicking and screaming from this island community in 1960. I finally reclaimed an Anacortes address in 1980, and I have been in constant celebration of my return since that time. Many of us who call Anacortes home love Fidalgo Island for its natural assets: among them are rugged beaches, pristine lakes, thousands of acres of forestland and some awesome views of the Skagit Valley and surrounding islands. Another element of my love affair with this community is its people, both natives and immigrants. They will “star” in many of my journal entries.
