The "S" Word

There's another round of rain headed this way, but - according to AccuHunch - not enough to prevent the floodwaters from continuing to recede. That's okay; we've had plenty.
The Eagleglen Golf Course, from www.adn.com

That forecast also includes the word "snow". We watched the snow line moving lower quickly, yesterday, and this morning's 'cast calls for a rain/snow mix by Saturday, at least on the hillside above us, and lows in the 20s. Something tells me that, at this rate, it won't be long before our first permanent snow.

The local news has been dominated, of late, by political things ... and I'm at my saturation point with it. Anyone who hasn't already decided how they'll vote in November simply hasn't been paying attention.

But I'm done with it, barring some new outrage/scandal/coverup, etc. Anyone out there have a request for an Alaskan story/destination/pictures?

I'm open to suggestions. :)

Good morning Rev,
They other day, a friend mentioned there is a city in Alaska called Unalaska. Have you heard of it? Ever visited the place?
It surprised me, I had to google the location. It's in the Aleutian Chain.

Wow, talk about "the rough".

Sandy, Unalaska is an island where the city of Dutch Harbor is located. That's where all those fishing vessels come from, on "The Deadliest Catch". It's a very well-known place, up here.

PH, that's a good one!
