Here We Go, Anchorage

As Hallowe’en flew past, and Thanksgiving flying in, and out, get ready for the Christmas holidays. Well, I’m ready.


Snow is coming late to the city, but I guess that Alyeska Ski Resort has several feet of snow, and I hear that Fairbanks is down to the minuses already.


We celebrated Veterans Day with a wonderful concert by the Community Chorus and ceremony at the American Legion Post 1 . . . other events, too.
Football season is peaking now, and locals are very interested in the NFL, as witnessed by the crowded bars this time of year. On Sunday mornings, the fans gather at 9 a.m., as our time zone is 4 hours behind NYC. The Petroleum Club offers a wonderful breakfast, together with door prizes. If you plan it right, you can make church services before or after. Ahem!


Some areas have still not recovered from the big windstorm 6 weeks ago. Above is pictured the elevated river in Soldotna, and there are trees down everywhere. The sun is shining today but it’s still pretty cold. Don’t go outside without covering everything but your eyeballs!
