Good news. It's snowing as I post. The weather this year had been less than ideal. Deep freezes followed by unusually warm weather that melted snow and ice. Sled Dog races in Anchorage have been canceled due to a lack of a snow base. The Fur Rondy starts in a few weeks and we need snow to make it fun.
As soon as Blogger lets me, I'll put up some pictures. I hope all is well with everyone.

I'll be out of town for the weekend. I'll be visiting British Petrolium (BP) in Prudhoe Bay during their Safety Fair. I'll try and get some pictures, but the weather isn't supposed to be so good. See you when I get back.

Santa Clause Shop is still all lite up. The ice cicles are hanging pretty heavy also. We had some clouds today, so it made things a little warmer. There still weren't many people around outside though. I guess it's the time of year to pay for Santa Clause.
It's still a secret where his shop is. If you don't know where it's at, you'll never find it. Even the street signs are hidden. It's not on any map I can find either. Most people have heard of it, but don't know where it's at either.
You want to make sure to take care of your bussiness before you go there though.

|From Around Anchorage|
Our friend Aggie has gone to, as my friend Meggie in PA would say, Rainbow Ridge. Aggie was given to my son Nick when he was almost 16. When Nick came to live with us, of course Aggie had to move in also. When Nick moved out on his own we talked him into leaving Aggie with us, figuring he would be better taken care of. Not that Nick wouldn't take care of him, but you know how it is when your first out on your own. Nick would hardly take care of himself. After that, Aggie developed some medical issues and Nick wouldn't even be able to afford the meds.
Aggie slowly became Ruth's dog. No, she didn't steal him from Nick. Aggie just had that natural attraction for her. He would hear her Caravan coming a block away and would stand on the back of the coach looking out the window for her and don't you get in his way.
Aggie's last day was special. He got whatever he wanted. Ruth went up to Safeway and got his favorite food. "Rotisserie Chicken". Though he really didn't want to eat, he ate that and wanted more. He even tried to play with his toys. He loved squeekie toys.
Aggie was 13. He was a dog among dogs. He will be missed dearly

-29°f. That's pretty cold.
But we have a few that don't mind it. These two moose weren't bothered by it as much as they were by me getting a picture or two. These were taken about 9:30 AM so it had to be breakfast.
I got some new long underwear and wool socks today, so I'm set for a bit. I hope everyone else is staying warm.
