Nice! I will remember that!

We dodged the ice bullet here, just stayed between 0 and 7F for a couple of days. None of the -10F or colder here!

The temp is expected to reach almost 40F today (Monday). It is already starting to melt. But no shorts or sandals ... yet!

Cheers Ajulian!

Alaska is being Alaska again 15 degrees , Really not that bad wind has slowed, yard is crusted over so it still is white and hiding whatever I forgot to pick up, I will find it in the spring. And the sun was out today. Mountains and the glaciers were visible, I would say the screen saver was on. It will be light again by almost 10 am Tuesday, Still gaining about 30 seconds per day. Remember it does not get dark here June 21 and then we stat loosing daylight again, I am still in hibernation mode Will return to never shut down by beginning of May.

Today it took a layer of snow one snow flake deep on the ice to keep my four wheel drive jeep trapped at the bottom of my driveway. It did get colder in the teens. Four wheel low and driving on the edge of unplowed crunchy snow I escaped. I called for help after returning and bobsledding down the drive. The sand truck backing down throwing sand as it descended my drive slid down the drive. It took half an hour for the sand to set up, stick to the ice. After that wait he was able to escape. Even with the events of this morning I would not live anywhere else. I grew up just outside of New York City but have been here for 30 plus years. Winter is winter and most of the tourists have gone home.

Even here in Missouri, when we have weather like we are currently experiencing, the 4-wheelers soon learn (usually the hard way) that although having two extra drive wheels (as in 4 wheel drive) may get one going in the snow and ice, they still have the same number of "brake" wheels: 4. Going faster on 4-wheel drive only means it is harder to stop in the ice and snow!!

I have been caught twice half way up a icy hill in a two ton truck with no other choice but to back down. Survived both and only ended up in the ditch once. Not an experience I care to repeat a third time.

I do appreciate your love for Alaska. I was about 8 or 9 when Dad took me fishing the first time. We used worms and the red / white plastic bobbers. Very frustrating for me; by the time I reacted to the fish strike, the worm (and fish) were gone. When I complained, Dad told me that the problem was these fish were fast, and smart. My reply was to ask to be taken to where the fish were "slow and dumb". Got my wish at Lake Louise. The Grailing were so dumb, all you had to do was cast the spinner and hook into the lake and pull out the fish!! Dad was so busy landing my catch (and with the home movie camera) that he only had time to catch one of the nine!

Cheers!

This is so true, yet here in upstate NY, it seems that many owners of 4-wheel-drive vehicles never learn this. I see them often going by on the highway 15mph faster than we are.
The other thing to go along with this, that my uncle taught me many years ago(when I was gushing over his new truck), was that 4-wheel-drive meant that when you got stuck, you would be farther away from home.
