The temperature was a pretty balmy 46 degrees today but you can tell by the snow slowly creeping down that we'll have some at sea level eventually. I'm not complaining - it is super mild out here compared to the "Alaska" I'm used to, and there will only be maybe 3 months of snow on the ground compared to the 6 months in Anchorage and the Kenai Peninsula. I've got a few more hikes I want to get in before the snow gets serious and stays around so hopefully the Sox will wrap up the World Series quickly so I can turn the TV off until the Superbowl.
Last night it was early to bed; tonight Zack called and confirmed his vacation time was approved so we're flying him out to the island for 4 days at Thanksgiving - fun! It's the only family I'll see until next April after "A" season is over and Goldfish and I do our grand tour of the states, ending up in Maine before returning to Dutch. I took the photo right across the street from my place yesterday on my lunchtime walk.
Cheers . . .
