Work whatever the weather

Published December 29, 2009 / by Steve Berentson

It’s clear in this photo, but it was a cold afternoon! Often when I am hurrying between car and the comfort of an office I am reminded of those who work outside, regardless of weather. I respect those, like employees at Dakota Creek Industries, whose daily work includes weather challenges. I am grateful for those who “move in to the weather” as I seek shelter: including those employed in utilities, fuel, transportation, law enforcement and emergency services industries.

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.
