The sun is setting in Nome now between 9-10:00 p.m. (7 minutes sooner every eve).
It snowed in Nome today. Not much, just a dusting. The past couple of days have not been good for mining, as the weather turned wet and windy again. The Goldenrod crew has been busy making any necessary adjustments to the dredge during this unwelcomed time off. Our crew will stay in Nome and dredge until the ice prevents them from going out (usually mid to late October).
Nome is starting to see the first signs of 'Old Man Winter' as the mountains collect snow on their peaks.
