It's sleeting again tonight and I'm sure the snow is sticking in the hills. It feels good though, like the next season is coming and we're all ready for it. I haven't heard anyone bitching about the oncoming winter, just the darkness. And for the most part everyone is stoked to see snow. I went out on the Tanana yesterday for the last time this season and it was gorgeous. Saw an osprey, a young bald eagle and a magpie. I have never seen a magpie in Fairbanks before, I think Healy is the farthest north I've seen one, but not anymore. And it was DEFINITELY a magpie.
Mazzy is done with fall.
