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.

Football season is peaking now, and locals are very interested in the NFL, as witnessed by the crowded bars this time of year.
