And you wonder why we love living here so much. Bear Valley on gorgeous afternoon.
Well, we've sure gotten our wish this year to get back to a normal Alaskan winter and have snow. Almost 2' in the past week of super-dry, weightless fluff! Another 8-10" yesterday and last night. Today, there's not a cloud in the sky and the trees are loaded to the point that everytime the Magpies land on the very top--which they love to do--there's an avalanche. It's gorgeous.
8"of snow last night, driveway drifted in this morning and now the wind is really howling up on the ridge of the Chugach Mountains behind the house. It has turned into a beautiful day, though!
It's that time of year when the weather just can't make up its mind. Patches of bright blue sky, racing clouds, blasting winds at times that are shaking the house. We'll be back to winter tomorrow ;)
