    SUMMER STEAM at WEST ISLAND A rolling fog bank oscillated back and forth for most of the day, July 5, 2019, at West Island. At the time, the fog so thick it created a mist, then the sun would burn through, and the fog would return again. A common occurrence this time of year along Southern MA.

    A handlebar view with a bike cam from Fort Phoenix to the West Island State Reservation, June 30, 2019 at 10AM. OUR SCENIC TREASURE IS HARD TO MEASURE A unique perspective, with bicycle camera mounted 45" from the ground of The Hurricane Barrier, Causeway, and to The West Island State Reservation. Watch the hyper-steady camera view, sail right over the rough trails of the reservation, smooth as a drone 4 feet off the ground. It was a beautiful Sunday morning, this last day of June, 2019 for the scenic 16.75 mile round trip. *ML's Note: Many from out of town, "bump" into Fairhaven by accident (ask any waitress) and are mesmerized by the astounding beauty of our area.

    BIG BREAKFAST - A male Red-bellied woodpecker has been stuffing as much orange pulp as he could over the past few days and headed off with a beakfull, probably to waiting chicks in a nest nearby. Tuesday - May 21, 2019 520AM at West Island alongside the State Reservation. Red-bellied Woodpeckers are common in many Eastern woodlands and forests, from old stands of oak and hickory to young hardwoods and pines. They will also often venture from forests to appear at backyard feeders. *ML's Note: Curious bird sounds in the background and wind chimes from a nice northwest wind added to the ambient audio captured in this clip. The temperature was 58.2F and humidity 72%. A fantastic stretch of weather is expected into the Memorial Day weekend! MLBaron video for westislandweather.com

    Routine servicing of gear at the West Island Weather Station tower in Fairhaven,MA occurs year round, weather permitting. MLBaron is belted up on tower. Inspection of tower structure, wiring and instruments keeps the SkyWarn rig fine tuned. Since 1992 the WIWS tower has been though historic and significant storms including the March 1993 "Super-Storm" (one of the most powerful winter storms along the Eastern seaboard since records were kept) along with numerous blizzards, thunderstorms, hailstorms and a few powerful tropical storms. The tower nicknamed "Dorothy" was erected by Peter Jarosik-KA1WBE. The West Island Weather Station is one of the highest rated American PWS Weather Stations in the world.
