It's a hair above the teens here and headed there fast, with the cold wind howling in from the Gorge.

Nice walk with the dog this morning despite the violent wind gusts. As soon as we got back in she insisted on going into the back yard to play some more in the snow. I'll be looking for a dog psychiatrist. Arctic dog, but there's got to be a limit.

well, it's not really THAT cold in Anchorage. 18 F or so right now at 6 PM, and it was around zero last night. we're not like Fairbanks, Tok, or Northway where it' gets -40F or worse, often (-40 F = -40 C also). It seems the mental picture of 'Alaska' to most is that we're all icicles when really the state is quite diverse. Down along the panhandle it snows but mainly they just rust along w/ the Pacific Northwesterners with all the rain. Here in Anchorage the worst it normally gets is -20 F (-29 C), and we'll have snow on the ground until mid-April so more sledding is in our future...

Yesterday, the high temperature in Dallas was 79* F. Today the high was 32* F. And tonight we are getting freezing rain with worries about glazed bridges and overpasses.

Yep my weekly customers were calling in asking if we were open tonight. Only the diehards showed up for class. (1hr north Dallas)

Our pup, Jasper, blasting in the snow at -30C (-22F)
He doesn't mind the cold too much either, though a 1 hour walk was enough for him that day.

We don't get snow here. Well, we're not SUPPOSED To get snow here. But every now and then the mountain range east of us gets a smattering. Today was that "every now and then," so the girls and I headed up to the dirt ridge road to explore.

Usually we can see the snow from the valley floor if there's any up there. Couldn't this morning, but we were already packed up, so we headed out.

Here's what we found at Miranda Pines campground in Santa Barbara County, CA.

Now THAT was the coldest bathroom I've EVER used! BRRR!

I don't brag about Georgia's summer weather, but today: Sunny, 75 degrees, or about 24 degrees celsius. Supposed to be a cold spell come in Monday, though. Oh well, great while it lasts!
