I have to admit, this whole arctic hurricane wasn't any more impressive than a bad arctic winter storm. Some areas such as Nome, however, did get hammered pretty bad though. The more worrisome part of it all for us in Brevig Mission was the potential for flooding.

I thought I'd share some early morning photos of the water levels.


This is our house.

There's lots of water on both sides of it.
Normally there is little to no water on the north side.


I usually walk across this stretch on my way to work.


Our boat is on the farthest to the right. It was moved up to a safer level by some friends in town.
C.O.'s shop shows up on the right of the photo, a little farther to the right is our house. As you can see, we sit on a pretty narrow strip of land.


The neighbors working to keep the roof on.


Waves coming up in the front "yard".
