Tropical Breezes in Anchorage

31 Dec

Yes, it’s warm. This is the third day I’ve woken to 40+ temps. And somehow that translates to melted snow and icy streets and sidewalks. Dog walks have become a great core strengthener as I try to maintain my balance – I have no idea why I keep forgetting my Yak Trax.ย

This is a footpath on my morning walk – that is solid ice. And it was somewhat amusing to watch all the turning cars practically spin out. No, no accidents. That would not be amusing. ๐Ÿ™‚

I hope it cools down and we get snow to cover this up, just to make walking a bit more pleasant.ย 

Winter in Alaska – tropical breezes or arctic blasts, who knows what tomorrow will bring…

    They sent us an email at work that said when it is slippery outside to try to walk like a penguin…maybe you should try that!

      It feels like it when it’s a 55 deg rise in temp from the previous week. ๐Ÿ™‚ Happy New Year!
