Snow heroes

Published February 16, 2019 / by Steve Berentson

My thanks to all (heroes and heroines) who responded to record snowfall by moving “into” the storm while the vast majority of us retreated to the safety of our homes. Thank you to all emergency responders, utility service people, law enforcement officers and business people who “fought the battle” to protect us and restore our streets and highways as record storms blanketed us in snow and ice. The preceding list is in no way comprehensive, but if you did battle with the snow, you know who you are!

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.
