One of the first signals that summer is well underway at West Island. *ML's Note: Males are usually the ones that catch the prey for the family. MLBaron video for westislandweather.com

    Edgewater Marsh Area March 29 2018 10AM West Island Weather Station drone operations. Rising tide cycles are increasing at an alarming rate where Sconticut Neck could become an island itself requiring a causeway. A federal climate science assessment recently concluded that a rise in sea level of one to four feet within a century is likely. Ask any local, they are taking notice. This video was taken at low tide. A recent video clip taken down the end of Edgewater St - the necks lowest point - illustrates how low this area already is at sea level

    PEACE BROUGHT TO YOU BY THOSE WHO SERVED A peaceful Memorial Day video shot in the early morning in 2016, I modified it for this 2018 presentation. "Those who talk the most about what's wrong with our country, have done the least for it. For those that have served, and continue to serve, need not talk at all."

    SUNRISE at The West Island State Reservation Friday - April 27, 2018 at 558AM. The temperature was 48.3 with a gentle breeze out of the west-southwest at 1.5MPH. The humidity was 92%. The ocean in Buzzards Bay read 50.5 degrees. We sent our drone up slowly to 400ft aiming east to Falmouth as the sun came up through some broken overcast. Some minor weather action passing through, however Summer like heat is expected to make headlines next week. ML's Note: 15 Years ago today, Buzzards Bay, West Island and Mattapoisett would soon be devasted by a major oil spill. Birds and wildlife would die in front of helpless onlookers along the shore.

    Captain Hoppy Hobson on the bow, directed Captain Sakwa at the helm as they guided his lobster boat onto a boat trailer at Hoppy's Landing for routine maitenance. The winter season took it's toll with lots of ice surrounding his boat. "The hull was scraped up pretty good from the chunks of ice this season." Sakwa said. The boat was transported by Bayline Marine to his Farmfield St home. Captain Sakwa services his boat from stem to stern himself. When asked how long it would take for the boat to get back in service, he snapped with a grin "How do I know? When it gets done it gets done." A predictable answer from this old sea dog at Hoppy's Landing. MLBaron video for westislandweather.com How bad was the ice? See this clip: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=s97Z7CV1Hqk

    Jack's Cove and Long Island featured in our continuing series of drone flights over West Island last year. This footage shot on May 21, 2017 at about 280 feet. Over 50 miles of flight time over the summer last year in this area brought some great video when the weather cooperated. *ML's Note: Considering how neglected the waters are in other countries, you can't appreciate enough how clean our bay is. Hoppy's Landing was devasted by a massive plume of oil on this 15th Anniversary of The 2003 Oil Spill - April 28, 2003.

    Right below at the beginning of this clip, 2 cottages once stood before Hurricane Bob swept them away on August 19, 1991. Wilbur Point has a large fresh water pond that once was used to make ice for the local grocery store. In the pre-WW II days, residents had many large goldfish in the pond. On the top center, Cuttyhunk Island is visible 13 miles away. Angelica Island is visible at the end of Wilbur Point. Goulart Memorial Drive was newly paved at the time of this clip, done on May 21, 2017. westislandweather.com
