Skippy, Tommy and The Von probably won't believe this (because they've only experienced one winter in Alaska and it was a no-snow disaster) but we're having a normal winter weather-wise. After the past couple of miserable winters, the past week has felt like being transported back in time to the good old days when it used to snow around here. It's been wonderful!
The UAA Ski Team returned from Montana this evening, and I bet they were psyched to see the snow when they landed at Anchorage International. I spent the afternoon in Girdwood, doing reconnaissance of next month's Seawolf RMISA race course.

|I think some snow went down my collar.|
