    Well all the snow that's blowing away isn't coming your way.
    -8 °f chill factor here, 15 deg with 40 mph winds.
    Cleaned/Sharpened saws inside today.
    Shoveled snow drifts outside shop door, twice. (will have to do it again if this keeps up)
    Ready for spring here too :), (4 more weeks)

    March can be the bad month for deep snow here (April fools blizzard a little over ten years ago)

    Kinda hoping we already got ours in December this year.

    My sister e-mailed me yesterday and said they have been getting hammered in Portage . . . after having several days of rain that took away most of the snow . . . and sadly they're among the folks who scavenge their firewood a little at a time and so they were out this past weekend taking beetle kill spruce to buck and split for use this week . . . hopefully when they make the move here to Maine they'll get ahead of the game and see the light of getting the firewood in early.

    A few days ago, Portage was isolated with 2 avalanches.
    Living with the glaciers means cold, wind & snow in winter, cold wind & rain in the summer :) Maine will be better weather for her. Quit a bit south, 4 seasons too.

    Yup . . . there has been more than a few times she has had to wait to get home . . . or has had to call the hospital to tell them she couldn't get into work due to an avalanche . . . something that she will not have to contend with in Maine. In fact, she wrote me the day they had one of those avalanches . . . said driving into work on the Seward Highway was terrible . . . could barely see the guardrails . . . and then she had learned the highway was blocked about an hour before she was going to head home.

    I think she'll enjoy being back home for some things . . . close to family (also a negative), she'll have a reason to buy and wear shorts in the summer again, four seasons, fresh vegetables in the stores (although she was doing pretty well with her garden . . . the supermarket fruits and veggies however she said rotted quickly due to the time it took to barge them in) and Maine in many ways is like a mini-Alaska . . . the culture is similar, folks like being outdoors and enjoy fishing, hunting, four wheeling, sledding, skiing, etc . . . just on a smaller scale . . . well that and we don't have any animals that will attack us. ;)

    Dave, or anyone else here, do you keep up to date on the Iditarod? It is a pretty darned good race so far and I like the looks of Jeff King. He's back on the trail after pulling his mandatory 24 hour layover.

    Following it right now.GPS tracking on the teams this year.
    I'm a Buser fan but his strategy has been off for the past few years.
    Down to King, Mackey, Neff, M Seavy & Schnuelle I think. Quite a few have their 24 hour lay over completed.
    Weather can always come into play though.
