This is the coldest January on record. Perhaps you think I’ve dropped this blog – well, I haven’t. You see, last month it was somehow published under my old username, ie. Alaskab4udie … one of the mysteries of blogging I haven’t taken time to figure out. Well, it’s okay because I have nothing to say except, “Br-r-r”.
I will admit, it’s beautiful looking out from my warm condo, but I’ve been running to and from my car, and wherever.
Unlike most ‘real Alaskans’ I don’t have a remote start, so it takes a mile or so to get warm. The other beautiful part of Alaska is watching the Aurora Borealis, which I’m including on my post for you to enjoy. There are some websites that actually show the movement of the beautiful colors, and there is even a hum – m – m that goes along.
Activities do not stop altogether, as indoor sports mostly in the schools and 'the Dome' continue. The Dome is a big bubble next to, but separate from, the Crosspoint Church/Fellowship. It's really big, and the schools rent it a lot for the outdoor sports programs. Like I said, it's just too cold to do anything, but then I'm a senior citizen. There were days when I actually liked it cold. But think of all the jobs that require being outdoors.
The concerts, symphony, opera, plays continue, and if you want to endure going downtown, you might find it’s even worth the freezy walk to the Performing Arts Center!
Well, enough said for now – enjoy the pictures!
