We have been getting prepared for the frozen north by living here in TN. We had quite the ice storm a week and a half ago. In fact it was colder here than Alaska several days.
Today we woke up to a nice snow cover. It was a welcome change from the ice that took several days to melt. This snow won't last long, as it is going to be above freezing today.
Notice the ice bump still on our patio. It was very thick.
We had a lot of "ice damming" in this last ice storm. The ice was so thick in the gutters, that it went up under the shingles on the roof. As the ice melted, the water leaked into houses. We did not have it, but some of our neightbors did.
Fairbanks is one of the best places to see the Northern Lights. We hope we have the opportunity to see them this year.
We would appreciate prayers for our trip. Pray for our stamina. My back has been giving me some problems. Yesterday I must have pulled a muscle, so it has been hurting. I would appreicate prayers for a quick healing.
Next pictures should be from Alaska!!
