Weather Perspective

We laugh and tease. You get a lot of snow, or even an inch and you freak out. That is hilarious. The fear from a mild about of precipitation entertains is. We are accustomed to the snow and cold. The snow and temperatures start to drop when the schools open, and it doesn’t relent until…

Cold Focus

To those of you in the Lower 48 dealing with the current cold snap. Don’t forget to see the silver lining the snow is gorgeous, even if you have to suffer with the cold to get some amazing photos. Seeing your town in frost or snow where there normally is none can be gorgeous if…

The Cold Visitor

            The wind blows snow from the leafless tree branches.  The snow lands on a visitor hunting the field.  The cat prowls, pupils scanning all within vision.  The snow hides the fluffy black fur and a bright red collar.  A red leash trailed behind alongside a long black tail.            …

Stalker Cat

And more snow…

I know it’s April ninth, but the weather in Fairbanks, Alaska doesn’t know that.

Shouldn’t have spoken so soon…

…winter is back! More surprises in Alaska. Snow! For this whole week possibly. Hoping the weatherman is wrong. How about you? Do you still have snow?

Sorry, Snow. This isn’t working out. We need to break up.

Here in Alaska, “Spring” is a welcome season. That means the snow will finally go away, after arriving as early as September and as late as November. Living here we are guaranteed to have a white Christmas. On the flip side, we are not guaranteed that the snow will melt by the end of April,…

Alaska 2 Days Before Halloween

Everyone is getting ready for Halloween. And Alaska says “Haha, no no. You aren’t going to enjoy Halloween like everyone else in America. You get 6 inches of snow.” I’ll let you see what I see.
