It's so easy for humans to become jaded and complacent; I don't want that to happen to us, regarding where we live.
This is from the shopping center nearest where we live. In the center of the picture is Flattop Mountain, the most-often climbed peak in Alaska.

We had clear skies overnight, but the temp only dropped to 10; it will be in single digits by tomorrow night, or so they say.
I was admiring the nearly-full moon this morning as I left for work, and nearly hit a bull moose standing in the road by my driveway. He was munching on a tree branch, and didn't even look at me as I passed within two feet of him. Those critters are hard to see in the dark.
We still haven't had any snow since mid-December, which is strange. At least it has stayed below freezing, excepting one afternoon where it hit 36 and then turned cooler again. We're thinking about whether we want to fight the crowds for limited parking near the waterfront tomorrow evening, as Anchorage touches off its annual fireworks display. Yes, we do shoot some on July 4th, but it's hard to see them in the daylight. We save the bulk of the fireworks for mid-winter, when we need the light.

The news is full of grim predictions of economic failure or collapse, breaches in airline security, rising taxes, full-gallop socialism, record-breaking political corruption, and ... on and on it goes. I want you to remember our Lord is in charge; He controls what happens, and when. The escalating anger at the governmental shenanigans has accomplished something that nothing else has, in the last 50 years: it woke up the slumbering majority.
But replacing the Decepticons in Congress with Republocrats won't be enough, as you know. We must get God-fearing, conservative, Constitutionalists into the government - and fast.

Enough politics. It's going to be a sunny day, with a high of 21. Sunny days are rare enough, and then it's dark by 4:30, so most working folks can only look out the office windows to see it, this time of year. We enjoy the sun immensely, because it's in such short supply.
Thanks for stopping by.
