Decisions, Decisions. Which Do I Like Best?

Posted on: January 15th, 2013 by Ron

Here in the midst of Winter, with snow up to our eyeballs, I like to look forward to Spring.  It’s sort of hard to decide which I like best though.  Can you guess?

Strange Winter Weather

Posted on: January 14th, 2013 by Ron

Today’s weather was quite strange.  Here in Alaska, we’re used to cold weather with temps in the -30’s, -40’s, and -50’s not at all unusual.  However, this morning we woke up to temps in the +30’s.  In fact, we melted quite a bit today and then it started to rain.  Rain at almost freezing air temps with the ground below freezing only makes for dangerous driving and the local schools cancelled classes for tomorrow.  However, there was a silver lining.  We had a beautiful double rainbow in the north.  Winter rainbows are seldom seen here because it takes “rain” and we usually don’t get that.  So, here’s a picture of the rainbow as we look towards the northwest.
