Twelve inches. Still snowing...

Not again!!!

Well; not to be harping on the same old s--t, but: it's snowing once again! Now, I realise that there other things worse in life than the weather; but I finally had virtually no snow in my yard yesterday;and since it has been at it from about 8:00 A.M., we have accumulated roughly 7". Unbeleivable... I think my sanity is seriously jeapordized. For an amateur gardener such as myself, this is so discouraging! I can only hope that the days of almost complete daylight will somehow make up for this seemingly endless, torturous, unrelenting winter! More later.

Artist that,s new to me! I've stumbled across an a musician that I know nothing about; other than I'm liking what I hear. Since I don't yet know how to import video from YouTube, click the link to partake!

Not again!?

I don't believe it! It's 8:45 p.m. and looking outside, I see; you guessed it! Friggin' SNOW!!!!! Augh!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Serenity NOW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :0(

Does winter ever end in Alaska?!

I think I've reached the saturation point where gloomy, snowy, cold days are concerned! We started to have actual 40 degree temps and sunshine for about a week; and it was glorious! Our yard was even visible, bits of it peaking out from remnants of dingy icy snow. I was daydreaming of potting soil; trips to the nursery; maybe even trying to start some tomato plants from seed! (Last year's attemt in Valdez at tomato cultivation was GRIM. 20 plants; a total of 6-yes-6 tough cherry tomatos! ) I was becoming delirious with the prospect of dirty fingernails, muddy knees and half-wine barrels full of colors and home-grown veggies! Then; BAM! Old man winter rolled over and dumped on us again: five inches of new snow, two more days of cold and gloom; and three more inches of the retched stuff. Now the temperatures are back in the teens and twenties. Blechh! I never thought that I'd become sick of snow...More on my manic moods later.

Wow; first post!

Here I am; dragged finally into the "future" For those of you who know me, you're quite aware of my compu-phobia. This is my attemt at growth (plus, I need to hone my language and typing skills!)
