It was daylight at 7:00 Am this morning and the sun actually rose above the eastern horizon at around 8:00 the day is 5 minuets and 43 seconds longer than yesterday. This is a good time of year here. However there always seems to be a fly in the ointment and the fly for the past three days is once again wind! The months since last October until today have been filled with extreme winds and some clocked to 90 mph. Even though the sun is shining bright and warm the wind is keeping me indoors. The...

The wind has died down finally! We live at the bottom end of the Matanuska Valley and very close to the Knik Arm of Cook Inlet so sometimes we get a little wind. The normal is a late fall wind storm and an early spring blow. This season has been harsh to say the least. We had our first wind in September and another by mid October.

After a New Years warming trend that has left the lane that leads to our home a solid mass of ice the weather has once again turned cold. No appreciable snow fall since I last wrote just enough warm weather & rain to make things interesting.

The days are slowly lengthening and the climb from darkness will be a slow one until the middle of February. At this time the changes in sun up & sun down become pretty obvious and you begin to feel some energy seeping back into your mussels...

I am new to the blog game and will begin with the news of 12/15/2010. For the past 30 hours my home has been pounded by high winds. Wind storms are not uncommon this close to the ocean inlet but this one has been particularly ferocious. I woke several times during the night to the sounds of tree limbs landing on the roof of the house. By three AM the power was out and the wood stove was struggling to keep the house at 60*. Morning reveals that the back lawn is nearly stripped of the snow that was...
