While flying this month, we noticed the outside cabin thermometer reading 72 °F at 2,500 feet above the ground! With weather this warm, we're keeping a close eye on snow levels and Puget Sound temperatures.

It appears 2015 may not be our only year of the jellyfish. We saw large patches of jellies in the southern finger inlets of the Sound. Also, signs of phytoplankton blooms are already visible in coastal bays.
As you can imagine, winter weather can make it very difficult to find a good day to fly. When we can't take to the skies our research boat, the Skookum, gets the job done!
