Ain't no business like snow business



There is hardly any snow this year and it grieves me. I also don't like to use the word "hardly." It's not a good word.
So there is about 4 inches on the ground and it's zero. Great weather to play in, nothing to play on. Word from the far north is that there is a decent amount north of the Elliot Highway but for those of us in the Golden Heart that is not happiness. A couple of days ago it was nearly 30F. But then every winter is strange in Fairbanks, that's about the only thing you can count on. I leave you with an igloo I built a few years ago when I was weathered in at a cabin in a whiteout blizzard.
And northern lights which have been depressingly non-existent this winter. What the hell?

Ahhh, but January is just around the corner. You know that month when the temps dip to a tad chilly 50 below? Can you make it til then?
