  • All most "HUMP" Day...........

    Just hours till the BIG HUMP DAY..........Then things will be lighter.......:topjob:
    ALASKA is a "HARD COUNTRY for OLDMEN". (But if you live it wide'ass open, balls'to the wall, the pedal floored, full throttle, it is a delightful place, to finally just sit-back and savor those memories while sipping Tequila).

    Party! Now if only the temperature warmed up as fast as the light came back. (What can I say, living in Tok ruined me for cold weather :-) )

                  What I always seem to appreciate is, that although it's great to have the longer days, it's even more pleasing on those certain days, when you can actually start to feel some heat from that big ball of fire in the sky.....

                    What kinda winter you chaps having? Last year was unusual as we froze up early Nov and it just kept getting colder here in Central,IL. This year has been more typical of last few, some days in low 20's, a few teens, then jumps to muddy rainy 40's or 50's then plummets again. Messy and hard to do anything...

                      Actually, we are having a very mild winter so far... Little to no snow to speak of around the Anchorage/valley area. Thankfully! I know there are a lot of people hoping for a white Christmas, but I am not one of them. LOL.

                          I would have thought as much as you folks love the outdoors you would also own a telescope for astronomy. Darkness is good for that and so is the cold for steady seeing.

                            I am one who looks forward to longer days as I work outside every day. A man should be in Hawaii from Nov. 1 - Jan 31 every year if he can swing it. I cant swing it so I endure. I don't especially care for winter and its mostly because of the short daylight. Driving to the jobsite on dark icy slick roads gets less appealing as one grows older. Some days it just makes more sense to stay home. Looking forward to retire from this.

                              Light snow here in Anchorage today, maybe 1" accumulation. Hate to say it, but if things don't turn around a bit, we're headed for a dry summer. Also if we hit our usual deep freeze in January / February, we could have some related issues in these parts with broken pipes and such...

                              It's been nice having some warmer weather though. 27F now, at 9:23pm. Not bad at all!
