A Facebook post from when I lived in Alaska in 2010.
Clear skies tonight, bitter cold, with a chance of Northern Lights.
~ weather in wasilla, alaska, december 13, 2010
Northeast of Fairbanks, Alaska, they recorded -52 degrees Fahrenheit this morning. Brrr...
Here’s a photo of three ravens surrounding a car in the snow in Wasilla, Alaska, on December 7, 2010. As I’ve written before, in many places they don’t plow the snow too hard in Alaska.
Had an unexpected reorganization at the company today.
Moved the desk around, re-positioned some lamps. (I work from home.)
So the woman who told me to “suck it up” when I complained about doing the laundry in the winter moved out of the apartment complex. Facta non verba, baby.
(I posted this on December 1, 2010, when I lived in an apartment in Wasilla, Alaska, and had a 75-yard outdoor commute to the laundry facility.)
“Parhelions, more commonly known as sun dogs or mock suns, appear as fuzzy rainbows or bright spots in the sky ‘dogging’ the Sun. You are most likely to see a sun dog in the morning or afternoon during the winter. Records of this phenomena date all the way back to the ancient Egyptians. Famous Ancient Greek philosophers Cicero and Aristotle even made mention of sun dogs.”
(I’m pretty sure I made the photo from Google image search results, but I don’t remember where I got that text. I posted this on Facebook on November 23, 2013.)
A note October 22, 2010: “I’m listening to the Armed Forces Radio Network while getting some work done at the Talkeetna Roadhouse.”
One reason why it’s hard to get home delivery in Alaska.
