The meteorologist predicted -25/-31 today. So its 10 degrees colder. I like weathermen. Whenever I feel badly about mistakes I’ve made, I think about them and feel much better.
The Yukon River Drainage Fisheries Association met in our village this week. The YRDFA is an important group working to bring together the many voices who are concerned about the declining king salmon population. I attended with six of my students and we interviewed native fishermen from every region along the Yukon, from its mouth to its headwaters. The story is a painful one because these men and women don’t fish for sport, they fish for life, and their food supply is at an historic low.
On a brighter note, we have lots of daylight now. What a blessing that is!
