Bering Sea Bergs

Spring 2013 was the coldest on record for the past 100 years or so in Nome, Alaska.  And, in May there was record snowfall in Nome.  The cold temperatures have delayed the start of the dredging season in Nome.

Nobody is going out now until the ice clears.  Believe it or not, it is short sleeve weather now in Nome.  Today the temperature will be in the 70s.  Perfect for dredging the Bering Sea.  Just awaiting the departure of ice.

Kentucky Goldenrod was out dredging for the first day this season on June 13.  On June 14th, the day was cut short due to sudden dense fog and icebergs. Good news is...Tom SAW gold while diving!
