Weather Tips (4)

VT Mini-Meeting and the Kodiak Fog!!

MrClay2000 finally makes it in to Kodiak albeit 5 hours late!! We had a massive fog bank that wouldn't break up so his first flight cancelled and he was able to make it on the next one! Just as I was hanging up the phone from him notifying me that he had arrived in Kodiak, Kaloz walked through my door!! He had just gotten off work. So Kaloz, my son and I all drove to the airport to pick up MrClay! It was the second time for me to meet a VT'er that wasn't from Kodiak. Suraphona was the first. As I had to work, Kaloz and my son gave MrClay the .50 cent tour around town. I put this tip here just to let you know that there aren't any guarantees that your flight will be on time. When you are in Anchorage it could be sunny and 85 degrees but here in Kodiak it could be 43 degrees and a super thick fog bank that just won't break up. So that means there the flights cannot land in Kodiak!!! I've been on a flights that have come over from Anchorage and circled Kodiak only to be denied landing clearance from the tower so we've flown all the way back to Anchorage!! That kind of flight sucks!!

Beware of the Fog!

If you plan on heading out onto the water in small craft pay attention the fog banks that sometimes are around Kodiak! If you get stuck in a fog bank it is very difficult to tell which way land is. And you also run the risk of being run over by some of the larger vessels in the area.

Kodiak: Summer vs Winter

Warning: If after you have visted Kodiak in the summer you wish to move: STOP. Do NOT drag your family here without visitng in the winter. The island is like night and day between the two seasons. Winter is dreary dreary unless you are prepared to turn inward to find entertainment and fufillment.

Winter storms!!

If you are going to hike in the back country in Winter Time be prepared for very quick weather changes!! It can go from blue sky to Whiteout conditions in just a few moments!! It happened on this day but we were only hiking at the beach so it was ok.
