Today, I bought some handmade slippers made out of seal skin and beaver for $100.00
They look like works of art.
ANYWAY, I WAS TALKING TO THE STORE MANAGER ABOUT LOCAL CRAFTS, ETC AND THE WEATHER. He told me that this is the weirdest weather he has seen and he grew up here. He said it is warm and weird. He said Emmonak never has rain in Jan like we had last week. HE SAID ABOVE ZERO NEVER HAPPENS IN JAN IN EMMONAK. I asked him if Global Warming could be the cause and he said yes. The change is much too drastic for anything else.
he said that the ice should be at least 5 to 8 feet thick and it is only about 2 feet thick.
I bought the shoes and talked to him about a beaver hat for my cold head and ears. I think I will buy a doll or two. I plan on buying one or two items a month. I might see if Maureen wants to display and maybe sell them in her store. These things are made by locals and I like that. The boy I gave the check to for the slippers is the son of the lady who made them.
Hope all is going well. It is -10 here in Emmonak. My camera died though - yuk!
My computer is working again. I put the Panther into my computer.
