Quick Update

Walking to school this morning, I didn't pull up the hood on my jacket. It didn't really seem all that cold, but by the time I reached the front steps I could feel the familiar pinch of impending frostbite stinging my right ear.

Obviously, it was colder than I thought.

When I arrived in my classroom, I checked the weather from the airport and that confirmed what my ear had already told me.

Wind from the E (080 degrees) at 12 MPH (10 KT)
Visibility 10 mile(s)
Sky conditions clear
Temperature-23 F (-31 C)
Windchill -47 F (-44)

Dew Point -29 F (-34 C)
Relative Humidity 74%

It's actually not as uncomfortable as it might sound. And the caribou seem to be enjoying it!

Ok. I will stop whining about the lousy weather here; compared to yours it is pretty nice.

Thanks for posting. I hope you are well.

Hi, Kristina!
You know, aside from having to stay bundled up, it's really not unpleasant here right now. We haven't had any substantial wind or blowing snow in a couple of weeks. And we've been getting lots of sunshine.

I hope spring shows up for you very soon. :) Great to hear from you!

Hi Kimberlee,

Great photos and stories today, 4/10/09
I hope things are going well for you and everyone up there on top of the world! Happy Resurrection Sunday! Christ is Risen! Isn't that great news.
Blessings to your and your kids. I love your photos...a picture tells a thousand words...or a nicely put story.

Favor and Grace of Christ be with you,
Mark Conway, Soldotna

Hey, Mark!
I'm glad to hear from you. I was afraid Mt.Redoubt might have blown you away. :)

Happy Easter to you and your family! It looks like it might be beautiful weather here (though temps are dropping again). I hope it's nice down your way as well.
