The weather is still the pits in Nome today; upper 40s and raining. Rain won't stop the crew from dredging with Goldenrod. However, the winds blowing (more than 10mph) any direction but from the Northeast usually will keep most all of the small dredge operations at bay. Which, for now, is fine with the Goldenrod crew, as they are awaiting a part for regearing the Kubota engines that run the suction hoses (currently not operating at the proper RPMs). Instead of dredging, they have been busy cutting windows into the container (which makes the living arrangement more like an RV or mobile home rather than a cracker box). Speaking of home, the crew was visited by a Shelbyville, KY native (Rob Purnell) and his sons this week! Just so happens the weather has been the worst it has been since the crews' arrival this summer.
