Winter Wonderland

The other day I was driving to yet another Christmas party when I entered a mystical, foggy abyss.  My first thought was that a moose was surely to be lost in the fog and would end up standing in front of my fast moving car.  Fortunately, that was not the case.. whew.  

Although it was -9 outside and I was wearing inappropriate attire for traipsing through the snow, I had to get out and take a few pictures of the fog across the river. AMAZING.  If I had been warmer, and not out of breath from running to and from my car (cold air really hurts the ol' lungs), I could have stayed out there and just stared at it....and pondered life for a bit. Instead, I took these in about 3 minutes, ran back to my car, and away I went.

Here's wishing everyone a Merry Christmas and a spectacular New Year!

Let it Snow, Let it Snow??

I get it.
 I live in Alaska.
  It snows here. 
But over a foot of snow in the blink of an eye?  
No Comprendo!!

The snow does have it's benefits:
- It's pretty
- It's fun to play in
- It's not as cold out when it snows
- It makes my house look even cuter (really, it does!)
- It requires me to get outside and work off a few calories

.. other than that, snow sucks.
