Two Seasons

People around these parts say there are only two seasons in Alaska: winter and construction. I have found this to be very true. Here it is the end of August and I can't help but wonder how some of these projects are going to get finished before winter sets in.


The center of town in North Pole is very small, so it's been a huge headache moving just a short distance all summer. I'm thrilled with the new road layout, however, and look forward to traffic flowing better through town.



Seven years in England made roundabouts second nature for me, but the new additions have left many locals scratching their heads and honking their horns.

You know, it just came to me that for the longest time I thought, if I ever saw a picture of "The North Pole" there would be igloos in it! Go figure..

Chad, hahahahaha that's ok, I remember flying to Hawaii thinking I'd see grass shacks on the beach. Yeah I remember that far back.

WOW I cannot believe when I just looked at the artic cam and it showed snow on the ground there already. It will be 92 today here in Arkansas

I am glad to see you are adding to your blog again. I read it once in awhile to remind me of my fun trips visiting my aunts in Fairbanks. Keep up the good work!
