WOW! Have we had a cold, windy, cloudy, rainy, overcast, damp, dreary (should I continue?) summer! What a test it has been to layer up, don the stocking cap and put on the rain gear each and every morning since mid-May! But…the last two days have been glorious with the biggest sun you can imagine. Our foliage is thick and green thanks to plenty of moisture and the vibrant blue skies compliment it SO well! Oh yeah, did I mention the “heat wave” that is pegging our thermometer at a whopping 72 degrees? WOW!! Some folks may take wearing a t-shirt for granted, but not us Alaskans!!
