Dear stormy reader,
While the western coast of Alaska is facing what meteorologist say could be the worst storm on record, with hurricane-force winds and 25-foot seas, all is fairly quiet, but very snowy, here at our house. We are in Southcentral Alaska, hundreds of miles from places like Nome where the storm is expected to hit hardest.
Around here, it has been cold — about 5 below zero Fahrenheit yesterday morning. Over the past week or so, we received a good blanket of snow. So in a word, it’s winter! And as evidence, here are some photos I took around our place yesterday.
