There has been almost no change in Arctic sea ice over the past two days. Green shows gain, red show loss.

    Summer above 80 deg. ended a few days ago on time. I’m expecting a signifcant minimum.

    It is snowing in many places in northern Alaska and looks like record or near record cold for them next week.

    Any luxury liners demonstrating how open the Northwest Passage is this year?

    On that map it looks temptingly close to open, but no cigar.

    How I miss the good old days of Arctic row boaters and beach vacations in Iqaluit in July. The surfing used to be so good.

    Well there is always hockey to be played on all that magnificent ice.

    The trees and I are shaken by the same wind but whereas
    The trees will lose their withered leaves,
    I just can’t seem to let them loose.
    And they can’t refresh me those hot winds of the south.
    Oh I feel like an alien, a stranger in an alien place.

      The long sobs/Of the violins/Of Autumn
      Wound my heart/With a monotonous/Languor.

      All choked/And pale, when/The hour chimes
      I remember/Days of old/And I cry

      And I’m going/On an ill wind/That carries me
      Here and there/As if a/Dead leaf.

      Paul Verlaine
