Winter in Kodiak

Buskin Lake is frozen and there is snow in the yard - whooo hooo. And it is supposed to stay cold for the next 5 days at least. Life is good. But it is funny - I checked the weather in Fairbanks and Anchorage, and they are in for some seriously frigid weather. Day time highs of negative 20 degrees type chill. Believe it or not, but that would be too cold for me. It is no fun to go skiing when it is that cold, and I doubt the kids would enjoy sledding much. When these arctic blasts push down from the North I am glad I live on Kodiak surrounded and buffered by the warm waters of the Gulf of Alaska. It is seriously cold on the mainland. Patrick

Anchorage was freezing today! We had a very chilly north wind, and although it was gorgeous outside, I had no desire to go out and do anything! Fortunately I'm en route to Seattle right now (yay in flight wi-fi!) where it will be significantly warmer and I'll get to experience rain again!!
