  • BRUTAL WINDCHILL to A WELCOME SEA BREEZE...

    Deadly wind chills and frozen sea spray advisories on March 5, 2017 at this spot on the Causeway have long been forgotten just 4 months later. Amazing seasonal changes in New England are legendary. While our "snowbirds" enjoyed the warm Florida sun, the temperature on March 5, 2017 was as low as 11.8 degrees with a wind chill of 8 below zero. Gale warnings were in place as we prepared for a Nor'Easter. Today, July 16, 2017, Hazy, Hot, and Humid conditions at 77.2F and a comfortable seabreeze embraced beach goers as they swam in the 73 degree water, at the same spot just 16 weeks later!

    A FOG BANK ENGULFED WEST ISLAND AFTER A THUNDERSTORM A typical late May "upper-level disturbance" (aka a thunderstorm) passed through Buzzards Bay and The Cape, this Wednesday afternoon, May 31, 2017. A rolling fog bank came in quickly overtaking the island and our cameras, but made for a cool clip. Enter the sound and wide screen for best viewing. As the last day of May departed along with this storm system, a dreary weather pattern this afternoon was a good send-off to one of the top 6 wettest Mays on record in the region. June is on shaky ground for a possible repeat. Almost twice as much rain fell for the month than usual. *ML's Note: Our Weather Review stats for the month will be posted shortly.

    Sunrise from Long Island looking east over West Island and Buzzards Bay, Wednesday, May 17, 2017 at 521AM. Partly cloudy days this time of the year, can render incredible sunrise and sunset events. Light angles, color and the sea shower you with rich, vibrant color and contrast, unfortunately for a brief moment. The temperature was 59.3 and the ocean was 55 degrees. The wind out of the southwest at 6, gusting to 9MPH. The humidity was on the rise at 83%, with air-conditioners being turned on for the first time (if you have one) by Thursday. A classic New England contrast in weather from cold, wet and raw a couple of days ago to hazy, hot and humid.

    Greater New Bedford Regional Vocational Technical High School students constructed and built almost 2 dozen picnic tables for a tri-town area. It was a student produced, community service project. Fairhaven Juniors Tara Cox and Lexi Lees thought of the idea for this project for the annual SKILLS USA, a national vocational school competition. A grant from Lowe's Home Improvements provided the lumber, materials and tools. Big Wheels Towing tranported the tables free of charge to New Bedford, Dartmouth and at Long Island - Hoppy's Landing in Fairhaven. "Visitors to Hoppy's Landing will now be able to enjoy spectacular views of Buzzards Bay from these tables." said Tim Cox, Fairhaven Harbormaster. Vegetation and landscaping indigenous to Long Island will also be planted under the supervision of vegetation expert Louise Barteaux of West Island. NB Voc-Tech received a 3rd Place-Bronze Award on the state level for this project. (*ML's Note: : Last year, they came in first.)

    Trails and beaches exposed before the spring foliage arrives on West Island. Video by The West Island Weather Station - KA1WBH. West Island is located off southern Massachusetts in Buzzards Bay about 8 miles northwest of Martha's Vineyard and 13 miles west of the Cape Cod Canal. Almost half of the 750 acre island is a pristine state reservation. The 338 acre reservation is owned by the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, Department of Conservation and Recreation. An educational poster at the park entrance describes the reservation as a habitat for common and rare resident and migratory bird species. The land includes salt marshes, brackish ponds, mud flats, rocky headlands, wetlands, hardwood forests and sandy beaches. The land was acquired in 1988, from Realty Transfer of New Jersey for $1.6 million.

    A PEACEFUL FLAT CALM This spectacular video looking to from Hoppy's Landing to Wilbur Point 1 mile away. It's ironic that the sun at its lowest in the sky can bring such brilliant light to create imagery like this., with a little help of no breeze. The music although haunting - was actually very beautiful and perfect for this clip with the music slowing pulsating in waves. Surreal sound for a surreal video. "Voices carry very far on still water like this. I once had a "conversation" with someone on Reservation Rd from Fort Phoenix. I've heard the Dartmouth band playing from Wilburs Point." Eric Mikal Birkeland The earth is also nearest to the sun this time of year and is fast approaching (perihelion) its peak in about 30 days. *ML's Note - Many might question how the earth can be the closest to the sun this time of year while the winter brings us the shortest days and coldest temps. The problem is the low angle of the sun and its speed across the sky. In a nut shell - the sun isn't high or out long enough in the northern hemisphere. December Solstice (Winter Solstice) is on Wednesday, December 21, 2016 at 5:44 am in Boston. This day is 6 hours, 13 minutes shorter than on June Solstice. In most locations north of Equator, the shortest day of the year is around this date. Earliest sunset is on December 8. However, our friends in the southern hemisphere are beginning to enjoy the Summer of 2016-2017. MLBaron DHD Video - West Island Weather Station Dec 7 2016 at 1230PM. http://www.westislandweather.com

  • Save West Island 30 Years Later

    In 1987, SAVE WEST ISLAND was formed. This small grassroots group fought to save the pristine backside of West Island from being destroyed into a development of over 100 homes and become private property forever. In December of 1988, The Commonwealth of Massachusetts signed into an agreement for the purchase and acquisition of over 350 acres of the bird sanctuaries, forestry and wetlands and named it "The West Island State Reservation". "Save West Island" received the coveted National Award "A" from the Audubon Society in 1989 for "Excellence in Environmental Action". It was an honor to have served as the groups Publicity Director. After looking back, I can vouch for a lot of my fellow members, that this was one of the greatest "Leaps of Faith" in our lifetime. I waited for the right sky for a reason when producing this clip.
