We’re still digging out up here. It was a pretty good snowstorm, even for Alaska, but we’re used to such things and boy howdy, do the summers ever make up for it.
We woke up Monday morning to about fourteen inches of new snow. The roads were still closed. I cleared paths to the woodshed, to the propane tank and to the office. Plowing the driveway proved to be more than our little utility tractor could handle, so I had our snowplow guy come in.
Down Anchorage way, they’re calling the last week or so “Snowmageddon.” Granted they got hit worse than we did.
Now it looks like we’ll get another three to five inches before Friday, and then we should have a breather, possibly until the New Year.
That’s Alaska for you. And, yes, totally worth it.

“Tough shit.” That’s a quote. Haw haw haw!
“This is not leadership, it’s cowardice.” Another quote!
Prediction: Nothing will come of this.

What happened with President Trump and Twitter.
This won’t amount to a hill of beans.
The Left, justifying censorship.
Elon Musk keeps kicking ’em and taking ’em.
Why Democrats lost rural America – because they’re utterly clueless as to what rural folks value?
Lauren Boebert dials it back. Probably not the worst idea, considering the squeaker of an election she just won.
This mother should tell CPS to fuck off. Geeze, when I was twelve I would disappear into the woods for two or three days with a .22 rifle and a couple of sandwiches. When I was sixteen I tied my canoe on top of my old car and went up to the Boundary Waters for a couple of weeks. Whenever my Mom expressed any concern about my absences, the Old Man always reassured her that “…he’ll come home when he gets hungry.” I always did. And somehow I survived it all without interference from busybodies.
Japan continues dialing their military in.
About time they fired this asshole.
