A man looking at a picture of the aurora borealis commented, “There’s a restaurant called the Northern Lights, so maybe we’ll be able to see them while we’re here.”

A former Skagway wind watcher who now resides in Florida emailed that she got into a discussion with a person who was thinking of going to Alaska.

“Can I go to Alaska if I’m taking blood thinners?” he asked.

The windward one assured him it was OK.

Rock and roll

Someone came up to a railroad official and asked if the rail cars carrying ballast for the railbed were hauling rocks from the slide by the dock.

We have one more shot at making this a memorable windy season. Send your wind to, or drop off at the News Depot on Broadway and we will enter you in our final monthly drawing for both volumes of Best of the Skagway Police Blotter, Vols 1 and 2, featuring the best of “Heard on the Wind.”
