Water on the Ice

Sunday October 13, 2013

Tok, AK (Current Weather Conditions)

Caption: Freeze-up is having a hard time coming this year. Well into October, and the ponds usually have thick ice. Not this year, a warm Chinook weather system is breaking all-time temperature records and this pond is thawing for the second time this freeze up. It sometimes stays above freezing overnight, unprecedented in my area.

Thanks Jon and Don.

Me too Don, though I don't think I'm 'quite' the fan of winter that you are! I am concerned though, for the 'health' of the far northland. How will the animals fare with the changes that are coming too quickly for natural adaptation?

Will the bears delay hibernation, even though most of their forage is gone, and use up their 'reserves', and then not survive when they do hibernate?

How about the polar ice cap and the polar bears? Walrus? Even moose need the cold temps, for their habitat to be healthy.

About katy99780


I've lived in Alaska since 1969. I love this wild land. The extremes of the far north shape and affect every living thing. Extremes of weather, elevation, daylight hours, isolation, flora and fauna, nothing in Nature is insignificant.I have a Davis Vantage Pro weather station, uploading to Wunderground, (Turks on the Tundra) the National Weather Service, the Citizen Weather Observation Program and MADIS (Meteorological Assimilation Data Ingest System). "May you have warmth in your igloo, oil in your lamp, and peace in your heart." ~ Indigenous Arctic Proverb
