Hello, hope you are having a pleasant day. For us, here in Moose Pass, snow has moved back in and last night we gained another 4 to 6 inches, plus maybe an inch or more today. Still, the trees are all coated with fresh snow, including my 3-chord-pile of cut wood. I was about to go outside yesterday to pile the smaller stuff into our black sled and tow it over to our woodshed, when my darling wife glanced at me with that threatening look she has become so good at delivering. So, I'm waiting for a couple of older teens to come by who want to earn some money. Two such boys...young men, stopped by to see Liam, not realizing he now has a job in Soldotna- 65 miles away from us an he's living with his mom. They didn't want the job. I have to admit it is n impressive pile of wood.
Greetings, World: Another radiant afternoon for Moose Pass, with temperatures in the plus 20's and not a single cloud in this sky-blue color...Best choice I could come up with because the sky is too light for a royal blue color and having grown up in the heavy smog of Southern California- which was an ugly brown, I am always vastly impressed by Alaska's skies.
Well, we've done it, we've finally run out of wood, but our electric heaters are keeping us from becoming popsicles. That an the two blankets and 4 dogs on my lap. Supposed to get a delivery of wood this evening, if not I start tearing down my wood shed, the local school and the parsonage next door. Good thing its above zero and we've just paid our electric bill.
Life in Alaska never get boring and yes, we are under clear blue skies. Two months of rain will hit us in June. Don't laugh, one year when Mom visited us, it rained for the 31-days she was here. Flooded Seward and we had salon swimming across the highway in 3-inches of water.
Hello, my friends: Another beautiful day in the Land of the Free, and Home of the Brave....good words to remember. Clear blue skies to report, but last couple of nights the clouds moved in and dropped a couple of inches, before drifting on as the sun rose. We're gaining 4 to 5 minutes a day and all too soon, we'll be up to a gain of 7-minutes a day. I celebrated by going to Seward this last Saturday with John Alex. A very nice couple donated to us their old washer and dryer, and we went in to pick them up. They blessed us and we hoped they are blessed in return. John is hooking up the washer today, YES! No more $65 to $75 trips to the Soldotna Laundry.
