Batten Down the Hatches

.
Blizzard is raging, snow plows have given up, everything in town has shut down and I am enjoying a nice morning drinking coffee listening to the wind howl.

I love it when you post weather forecasts. It reminds me of listening to them on OTZ radio, via internet. And there's nothing quite as satisfying as a good storm when you can just sit back and enjoy it.

I hope y'all weathered the blizzard well, like true Alaskans!
I wish I could have been there to see the snow and hear the howl!

I have no trouble drinking coffee on the deck in 80 degree weather. Which is lucky because it mostly is, around here.
