Getting Ready for Winter

Winter is in the air. It's getting colder. That snow line is falling lower and lower down the mountain. We've started our winter preparations:

  • Put on the studded snow tires - Check.

  • Pull out the winter coats - Done.

  • Replace Rain Boots with Snow Boots - TBD

  • Lubricate door locks -To Do

  • Seal windows - To Do

  • Stock up on books and movies for long winter nights - To Do

  • Dark commute both ways - Already.


  1. I didn't read anything about hot chocolate. Hmm. It probably deserves a post of its own anyway. Stay warm!

  2. We had a blast of winter this week that I think you can appreciate. 12 inches of snow. Yep that's right. It was a 80 on Monday and on Wednesday we woke to 12 inches of snow. Thankfully it melted on the streets and sidewalks because the ground was too warm but it stayed on the grass and trees so we could play in it. Lots of trees around here hadn't lost their leaves yet so lots of downed trees and loss of power, felt like I was back in Washington. I am hoping it warms up for Halloween.

  3. You're definitely tough living in the wilds of Alaska!


I love comments.
