On the Kenai Penninsula of southern Alaska there's
this lake where glaciers once dumped icebergs straight into ice-choked
water. I waited and I waited while the sky cleared and clouded over,
cleared and clouded over again. Much seemed promised, but nothing
particularly dramatic happened.
Then all at once, the sky fell
and these storm clouds tumbled over the mountains into the valley
of Portage glacier. A few minutes later, all was rain and fog.
But for just these few seconds...this.
