Heat wave......

Y'all in the lower 48 are bundling up against the cold, us here in Alaska are about to break out the pools and bikinis. There is sub tropical pacific storm that went super tropical and slammed into us. We have had 40+ degree weather since Christmas. Yesterday taking down the decorations, I was outside in sweat paints and light cotton long sleeve....haven't been able to do that since the beginning of October.

    See, I told you 40 degrees would feel "warm". Are you picking up on the change in pitch to the squeaky snow as the temp fluctuates?

    In Fairbanks I could tell the difference in the snow squeak when the temp went from -35ish back up to -25ish....

    Had to bring the little dog in yesterday. With the heat, we had two eagles up in the air circling the area hunting...these two boys where huge too...

    I got to see some of the skeeters when I got here in the summer...I could not believe it!

    Nothing is small here, except the squirrels...I don't get that.
