Nome Storm

When you live on the Bering Strait, you already expect weather to be bad.  When the weather advisories say a life-threatening storm of epic magnitude, you have to figure that's pretty intense.

So when your boy is in that, you worry.

Have you been able to hear how your son is?

Hoping he's coming through this crazy storm with no major trouble.

He makes me crazy. He's treating it as an adventure and posting photos on Facebook. More bragging than fear.

Well, that's what young men do.
