I known I've titled this "First Snow," but to tell you the truth..it is very far from it here in Alaska. In the last month we've been anywhere from -10 degrees all the way up to 38 degrees. It's been an interesting fall! With the warmer weather comes the beautiful snow covering all the dead left from early fall. I am able to cope with the below zero temps in thoughts that it is freezing our lovely lagoon in the backyard and inviting us to ice skate even sooner.
Sorry I have been gone from here for so long. You would think with all the hibernating indoors I've been doing that I would have more time..but to tell you the truth, it has been too difficult just getting up from the cozy sofa enjoyed with my trusty couch potato, Kiska. We spent about four hours yesterday knitting and watching Charlie Brown. What more could you possibly ask for? In the last three day we've accumulated nine inches of snow!
I'm looking forward to the rest of this winter already.. keeping my eyes peeled for the beautiful Aurora Borealis and all the other surprises Alaska could possibly hold for ones first winter..
