boom and budge


This shot captures a bit of our local building boom as Agnico-Eagle's mine prepares for opening in a few short years. As for the budge, they've actually managed to tug the beached barge off the bottom of Baker Lake and past town... it looks like its escaped a second winter frozen in. Probably this is a good thing for all involved. I think its a testament to sheer will power since they've had as many as 3 tugs working on it at various times for the last few weeks. Its definately going to be a change to the landscape.

I missed getting a neat sunset this evening, but I figured by the time Igot down and outside dressed for the weather it was going to be past. Its report time... so I'm probably going to be laying low the next few days... however... look for some last pictures of the barge taken a two nights ago. We've actually had fairly warm weather the last few days... but its looking like we are headed for sunny and chilly over the next few days.

However, the weather report changes so often... well... I guess we shal see.

I guess the boom is still going on every where. Have you seen this article about baker lake? (Page 12)http://www.ntwwa.com/documents/NTWasteWater_2007_Web_000.pdf
I'm interested to know what you think since you live there!
