You'd think, that living in Alaska would denote snowy weather. Robo is in Anchorage which is farther north (and west) than Juneau, where I am. His winters are longer and colder than ours so our weather expectations are different. But sometimes we get the same storm passing through.

Last night, when I trekked home from the first night of Folk Festival it was kind of nice out, drizzling light rain but not cold. (Our standards are notoriously low here!)

This morning we had a beautiful white world. On the sidewalks, the snow was crunchy but the streets were slick and hard with ice.

April 15 is the deadline in southeast Alaska for removing studded tires- this morning I imagine some people wish they hadn't removed them early.
