    Ahhhhhh, I love alaska, I give you guys credit for hanging around at those temps! How is it, you get frost bite easy? How is the snow? fluffy? Alaska is on my list of places to visit or move to when i get a little older :)

    i've never had frost bite thank god! lol but its very possible and you gotta be careful, in a few storms last year i may have came close as my feet got really wet and cold in sneakers and it was close.

    the snow just depends on the temps..ofcourse around 32-34* its wet...but recently its been VERY fluffy and dry..easy to push..which the truck likes im sure haha we see snow here in anchorage from late october untill early april..year before last we had 2" on may 15th and that same year we had snow on september 24th..this year has been very light...im expecting a few big storms to hit us soon..its gotta happen!



    so it snowed about 5-6" last night so i got a few more today...its so beautiful outside!!!

    not at all, actuly my driveway is all gravel/dirt..but before i plow i let the first 6" or so pack down hard so i have a good base to go on..so the driveway itself never gets touched.


    well we had warm weather from HI come in...was 45* at 8am this monring! i got a call from the guy i plow for up the street. he had slid down his glare ice driveway and across the road into the ditch and wanted me to pull him out, i didnt know how bad it was...walked outside to the truck and fell down haha i knew it wouldnt be good..35mins later i was able to get him out..had to use my explorer with studds because our whole road is like a ice skating rink! but we have lost about 7" of snow pack with the warm weather...so im hoping it will snow!!! supposed to cool down tonight!

    I thought saint paul would have been one of the coldest since it's in the middle of the ocean.
