Greetings from the Chugach Mountain Range and our small community of Moose Pass. We've been experiencing a week of rain, sun, cold and hot, giving us a normal Alaskan summer for this area. Moose Pass is said to be a community of 200 people, but this also means the children and I thinks the various animal critters we all keep. They struggle here to maintain the elementary school open, which requires a dozen 1st to 6th grade kids.
The computer seems to be working today, so everyone cross your fingers that I can finish this on my first attempt, as it does sadden me when everything suddenly vanishes. Weather has been a toss-up between rain and sun, but thankfully no snow. Yes, I have seen snow flurries in July, a decent snow fall in June and several snows in August and September. Alaska is simply tricky, but so very beautiful.
Hello to all, and I wish you a wonderful summer day. Hope you have enjoyed great 4th of July. For us, we stayed home as the Seward 4th of July celebration can be maddening. We've watched the Mount Marathon Race numerous times, fought with the traffic and now it is nice to just stay home and watch 50,000 vehicles drive by once the races have finished and most of the people are headed back to Anchorage, Soldotna or Kenai.
