Up here in the north ...

We have snow!! Oodles of it. It is the beautiful stuff that makes driving so challenging. 25 miles on hour on the curvy road to work is a bit of a challenge, but we are thrilled.

Jari left for the slope a week ago this past Monday, planning on staying for 7 weeks. He had a problem with a swollen hand and they flew him home on Monday. Has seen a doctor, is wearing a brace and will be home until next Tuesday at least. We love having him at home.

Bronte Paski, along with his son Anthony, are here visiting. He's trucking from AZ/UT to Alaska and actually had a run that went to Anchorage. He's here for a few days ... and Jari is doing a good job on the Alaska sales pitch ... intentional or not.

Time to get spuds peeled for tomorrow nites dinner. Have a great day!

Yesterday we got snow and it was the slushy, pull you in the ditch type of snow. I saw 2 vehicles in the ditch and drove slowly. This morning, I think people are nervous. It was the longest, slowest drive to work and the roads were perfectly clear!!! Winter is coming.

What is going on with Jari's hand?

The other day the driving was pretty bad down here also. The visibility was down to one mile with all the smog we get here in the winter and my car looks brown from it to. Did not cause to many crashes that I know of but was icky never the less.
