    Decending Snow Level

    Pretty decent day down here in Juneau today. Filtered sun through a broken high overcast and 50 degs out. The higher hills around town back up towards the ice field are covered with termination dust but generally snow for us is still several weeks away. Feels almost like spring outside except for all the trees full of brown leaves.

    yup its been cold last few days but no snow yet and the dermination dust has moved back up the mountain after the last day of rain. today was the avetage first day of snow fall for us but uh yeah no snow. to be honest i still havnt put the winter tires on any of the trucks yet nor have i put the racecar away. guess i should do that instead of workin on my offroader.
