Waking up this morning...

Well, not sure if we were mentally prepared for our first winter in Alaska or not with real snowfall, but it decided we were. Eric had an interview this morning to go to with work afterwards, so we were up early and peeking out the window. I'm thinking I haven't gotten past my southern mentality of believing I have to take pics before the snow melts. My little brain hasn't totally wrapped around the fact that this snow is here to stay for the next 5 to 6 months, give or take. Ok, so we head out to clean off the car so we can warm it up. Measurement on top of the car (keeping in mind we had 3 inches on the ground already)

I looked back where we came down the steps, almost missing every one since snow had it to the level the one above it usually is at.

We can see the car peeking!

My guy working his way around the car...

Weather forecast is calling for another 4-10 inches thru tonight..this should get interesting. Yes, still loving it so far! At least it has to warm up a bit to snow, haha.

Certainly looks like snow to me! I'm not sure how long it would take me to get used to that!

Keep those feet warm, my friend!

Hey...you don't have a "real" toilet seat in your outhouse do you? If you do you need to get rid of it and make a new one out of blue foam insulation. You will thank me later for that little tidbit of advice.

I stumbled across your blog from a comment you made on another blog. My wife and I have been thinking about moving to AK for several years, and now it is closer to becoming a reality. I enjoyed reading about your journey and look forward to reading more in the future. The snow looks great....(I'm an original Southern Boy, too!!).
