Unsecured Premise - Caller reported that roofing on a neighboring house was flapping in the brisk Aleutian breeze. An officer contacted the homeowner and advised her of the problem.


I'm sure it was the roof...

Cheap metal roofing and a sustained 15-25 mph wind on a calm day will do that. Imagine the 4-5 winter storms that are like a Cat 1 coming ashore each year. Fun, games and -70F or colder good times

I was going for more of "a penis flapping in the breeze," but your answer will suffice.

Two taxi drivers reported that they were each being harassed by the other, via rude phone calls. An officer suggested they might want to consider not phoning one another, thus possibly alleviating the problem.

How many taxi drivers can Unalaska possibly have? It would warm my cockles if these were the only two.

As a previous visitor to Dutch Harbor, this is pretty interesting. A brisk Aleutian breeze can easily reach 80 mph and has been recorded over 100 mph on numerous occasions. Also on the island is one of the most dangerous bars in America, as per an article that I believe was written by Playboy. And yes the bar really is very rough, I do not remember its name. Dutch Harbor is a very small island full of transient workers who only visit to take part in the seasonal fishing. When not on the boats there really is nothing to do on the island. I am not making this up, nothing to do. All of the fishermen and fisherwomen drink and drink heavily, because that is the only way to forget that you are on an island in the middle of nowhere and that your boat is probably a better place to be than the island. That was the only place that I have ever been when I wanted to stay on my vessel more than I wanted to visit the town. I remember going to the supply store and watching a boat crew chief buy a pallet of cigarettes to go with his pallet of food. Read that again, he bought a pallet of ciagarettes. I saw him wheel it out of the store. That is some hard core stuff. I know the boats can go out for over a month at a time, but with only a few people on board that many cigs could only be spread around so far. Dutch was a great place to visit and see all of the cool WWII stuff around. The Bald Eagles were everywhere and I am glad that I got to visit, but I would never want to live there. It is way to isolated for me and I am a country boy who loves not seeing his neighbors.

It's an epidemic. I stopped by our shop the other night and spotted a case of beer that someone has stashed under our truck. We've had a problem with kids hanging out by the shop, tagging it, breaking windows, leaving their empties, etc. I just called the cops to deal with it. Why didn't I just take it home??

And up here in the interior, we still have people who think a blue plastic tarp is valid roofing materiel. You have to love a state where once you get about a mile from the center of town, building codes are more suggestions than rules.

Alaska kind of is like Mayberry, especially once you're past tourist/fishing season. Unless you're in Anchorage, or in downtown Fairbanks, odds on, when a cop responds to something, the officer and the person getting busted are on a first name basis. The whole state is a series of small towns and villages, with the exception of a couple of population centers.

Grew up in small town in northern Maine, pretty much this. The cops are likely to say Carl you dumbshiat go home and sober up.

/If it was not theft, DUI, assault, or child abuse they let it go.

The week I was there there were about 30 entries, 27 of which were drunk driving arrests. The other three were domestic violence, a car break in, and a vehicle hits Moose.

Yeah, one small town in which I lived would get a weekly State Trooper drive-through. He normally wouldn't stop, but just drive the small cirlce that is our town and head back to wherever. Essentially there was zero police presence unless something major went down (which, admittedly was not hugely uncommon). Still seeing a cop was notably rare, and, for the most part, things went along about as smoothly as any other random small town.

To somewhat better tie this into the conversation, the coldest I've actually experienced while being aware of the temperature was -58F. Far from any all time records but definitely cold enough. This being SE interior Alaska.

Believe it or not, there are a lot of small towns where arrests and citations are quite rare. I know of one where one the most common activities in the police blotter is "ATM assist." This is where they meet some little old lady at the ATM while she uses it, because she's watched too much TV and thinks that a hardened criminal will be hiding out there to hit her in the head and take her money. The fact that this has never happened in a town of 900 people doesn't matter.

Ah of course. At least I didn't snark and make an ass of myself over it :)

Thinking of my previous post, I have no clue what the coldest weather I've experienced would be if including windchill, but I've been in -40s with gusts hitting over 60mph and other similar conditions many times. I don't recall if it was particularly windy during the -56F time but it most likely was. Also that -56F was during the day while I was out and could verify it. I have been comfortably warm and inside during colder times.

The Juneau, AK, police blotter was always an entertaining read: bears got into somebody's garbage... domestic dispute down at the trailer park in Lemon Creek...teenagers rifled through someone's car and stole 6 CD's...

The best one I remember from my time there was a mid-December entry filed under the heading "Wishful Thinking" (rather than "Burglary," "Assault," or what have you).

It noted that some teens and 20-somethings had started a bonfire down by the Douglas Island marina, partly fueled by old snow skis. When queried by the police as to what they were doing they responded, "We're sacrificing our skis to the Ski God in hopes that it will bring snow." LOL!

Then there was the one about two naked girls who were caught mudwrestling out on Turnagain Arm and -- HEY! You're not even reading anymore are you...? (sigh)

I'm thinking I can go back through some old vehicle records and tell you the exact day that was, too. It was the day I discovered a truck engine can both freeze (lower end) and overheat (head gaskets) at the exact same time while driving down the road.

Tow bill from a couple of miles north of the Big Lake cutoff to Wasilla was a bit pricey, but worth it to have a warm tow truck show up...

• Friday, August 31 10:22 a.m. A deranged raccoon was reported on West End Road, disoriented, walking in circles and trying to climb a pole. An officer determined that it was likely rabid, and used the special birdshot that officers carry for just such occasions to end the ailing animal's misery. After that, a morally outraged caller from a nearby hydroponics shop called to deliver a lecture on social responsibilty, unknowingly redlining the irony meter. Taking a break from selling devices that expedite felonies, hurt the environment, wreck homes and make people feel unsafe in their neighborhoods, the upset caller advised that since the diseased critter had been shot, police were now obliged to eat its body. The dispatcher patiently explained that eating a rabid animal could transmit the disease to humans.

BWAHAHHAHAHAHHA

Skyd1v: Wasilla Hillbilly: Smeggy Smurf: Wasilla Hillbilly: Smeggy Smurf: blatz514: Unsecured Premise - Caller reported that roofing on a neighboring house was flapping in the brisk Aleutian breeze. An officer contacted the homeowner and advised her of the problem.

Thinking of my previous post, I have no clue what the coldest weather I've experienced would be if including windchill, but I've been in -40s with gusts hitting over 60mph and other similar conditions many times. I don't recall if it was particularly windy during the -56F time but it most likely was. Also that -56F was during the day while I was out and could verify it. I have been comfortably warm and inside during colder times.

I'm thinking I can go back through some old vehicle records and tell you the exact day that was, too. It was the day I discovered a truck engine can both freeze (lower end) and overheat (head gaskets) at the exact same time while driving down the road.

Tow bill from a couple of miles north of the Big Lake cutoff to Wasilla was a bit pricey, but worth it to have a warm tow truck show up...


It would definitely be some old records. I haven't lived in AK in over 12 years now ;)

1:23 p.m. A woman reported that an unknown force was threatening her and "pushing on her anus from the inside." She declined assistance.

Hahaha I've lived in a lot of small towns in Northern BC... But these Alaskans really up the crazy factor.

Wasilla Hillbilly: To somewhat better tie this into the conversation, the coldest I've actually experienced while being aware of the temperature was -58F. Far from any all time records but definitely cold enough. This being SE interior Alaska.


I was stationed at Elmendorf from 87-94. Was it 1987 or 88 that we had two weeks of seriously bitter cold? If I remember correctly it didn't get warmer than -25F in Anchorage during those two weeks, and Fairbanks was like -50F during that time. I don't remember a cold spell like that the rest of my time up there.

It may well have been in 94. No earlier though and maybe as late as 96.

It was 94. I was in the 1/501st at Ft. Richardson. We got pulled out of the feild and sent home due to the cold.

Found a Prosey Rhyme for This:

Just sittin' and watching the roof slapping in the breeze,
stuck in Dutch, watching it freeze.

People at the airport mad and disgruntled,
The Capt. got caught piddlin' in a puddle.

Cops took the beer forgetful left on the road,
waiting for a cab that never showed.

Preacher pounding on the door,
telling people they need to hear God more.

Mr. mini-van just ain't drivin' sane,
Making the neighbors all complain.

Lady about to get into a panic,
then she realized its the mechanic.

Just sittin' watching the roof slapping in the breeze,
stuck in Dutch, watching it freeze.
